The increasingly widespread use of optical chemical sensor technology has paved the way for a broad range of exciting new applications in areas such as medicine, biotechnology, remote control, and the environment. In fact, this technique is growing so rapidly that it has proven difficult to obtain updated reference material on the subject — until now.
