Low-cost and user-friendly solutions for water qual-ity assessment are needful nowadays, which can allow for remote, in-site and real-time monitoring of water contaminants. Sensing technologies using Polymeric Optical Fibres (POFs) combined with spe-cially developed sensitive layers for chemical detec-tion may offer these possibilities, with proper inter-rogation systems.
