An optical sensor for pH is presented which is based on the use of a thin polypyrrole (PPy) film obtained by chemical oxidation of pyrrole and deposited as a < 1 μm film on the walls of a polystyrene cuvette. The spectrum of PPy displays strong absorption in the near infrared at around 900 nm, and a characteristic minimum at around 550 nm. The shape and intensity of the spectrum are pH-dependent ...
