• Application of gold complexes in the development of sensors for volatile organic compounds 

      Luquin, Asunción Upna; Elosúa Aguado, César Upna; Vergara, Elena; Estella, Juncal Upna; Cerrada, Elena; Bariáin Aisa, Cándido Upna; Matías Maestro, Ignacio Upna; Garrido Segovia, Julián José Upna; Laguna, Mariano (World Gold Council, 2007)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      Two different kinds of sensors have been developed by using the same kind of vapochromic complexes. The vapochromic materials [Au2Ag2(C6F5)(4)L-2](n) have different colours depending on the ligand L. These materials change, ...
    • Development of an in-fiber nanocavity towards detection of volatile organic gases 

      Elosúa Aguado, César Upna; Matías Maestro, Ignacio Upna; Bariáin Aisa, Cándido Upna; Arregui San Martín, Francisco Javier Upna (MDPI, 2006)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      A fiber optic sensor for Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) detection has been developed and characterized for some organic gasses. The sensor is based on a novel vapochromic material, which is able to change its optical ...
    • Long-range hybrid network with point and distributed Brillouin sensors using Raman amplification 

      Zornoza Indart, Ander; Pérez Herrera, Rosa Ana Upna; Elosúa Aguado, César Upna; Díaz Lucas, Silvia Upna; Bariáin Aisa, Cándido Upna; Loayssa Lara, Alayn Upna; López-Amo Sáinz, Manuel Upna (Optical Society of America, 2010)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      We propose a novel concept for hybrid networks that combine point and distributed Brillouin sensors in a cost-effective architecture that also deploys remote distributed Raman amplification to extend the sensing range. A ...
    • Micro and nanostructured materials for the development of optical fibre sensors
