Abstract : This final report describes a database that supports the development, engineering and manufacturing of dependable chemical sensors which include fiber-optics in the design and which are suitable for use in the field by technicians. Inexperienced investigators using the database can start with the state of the art rather than starting over each time a requirement for a new chemical sensor is established. The expectations are shorter development times and reduced development and engineering costs. Spectroscopy, Chemometrics, Absorption spectroscopy, Ultraviolet spectroscopy, ATR Spectroscopy, NIR spectroscopy.
