O2, where are you? The spatial distribution of oxygen can be imaged with a conventional digital camera by making use of a specially designed fluorescent sensor film containing a quenchable red-emitting probe for oxygen along with a green-emitting reference fluorophore. The technique exploits the RGB channels involved in digital photography (see picture) to deliver a simple method for quantitative sensing and imaging of this important species.
