Abstract: We report on a one step functionalization process for optical fiber sensing applications in which a thin film ("50 nm) polymer doped with sensor molecules is applied to a silica exposed-core fiber. The method removes the need for surface attachment of functional groups, while integrating the polymer, silica and sensor molecule elements to create a distributed sensor capable of detecting an analyte of interest anywhere along the fiber’s length. We also show that the thin film coating serves a protective function, reducing deterioration in the transmission properties of the silica exposed-core fiber, but increasing loss
