Description

This research involves the study of fluorescent compounds and which solvent gives the best results. In the end, clear fluorescent images are desired. The use of several different chemicals to clean the surface of the glass and chemically react it with the fluorescent compounds was how this research was carried out. The use of organic solvents in the fluorescent compound reaction step was what gave the best results. Using these, several clearly fluorescing images were obtained. It can be concluded that this method is successful for glass slides. Our goal is to extend this method to optical fibers.
