Thin films consisting of a sol-gel Nb2O5 matrix doped with fly ash zeolites in different volume fractions were deposited by the method of spin-coating. Zeolites of Na-X phase were prepared by long-term alkaline atmospheric conversion of coal ash collected from the electrostatic precipitators in TPP "AES Galabovo" supplied by lignite coal from the "Maritza East" basin using two different molarities of alkaline activator (NaOH). The surface morphology and structure of zeolite powders and films were studied by scanning electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction, respectively. Optical constants (refractive index and extinction coefficient) along with thickness of the films were calculated using a previously developed procedure comprising two steps of nonlinear minimization of the discrepancies between the measured and calculated reflectance spectra of films deposited on silicon substrates. The liquid adsorption and vapor sensing ability of fly ash zeolites were tested by measuring the reflectance spectra of the films prior to and after exposure to probe acetone molecules. The application of zeolites from fly ash for optical sensing is demonstrated and discussed.

The influence of the macromolecular architecture of block copolymers containing poly(N,N-dimethyl acrylamide) (PDMA) on the optical characteristics and sensing properties of corresponding thin films is discussed. Series of hydrophilic PDMA-based copolymers of different chemical composition and chain architecture such as triblock, star-shaped, and branched were synthesized. The copolymers were characterized using conventional spectroscopic techniques as well as methods for characterization of copolymer macromolecular characteristics in solution, namely size-exclusion chromatography and static light scattering. Thin films of the copolymers of nanometer scale thickness were deposited on silicon substrates by the spin-coating method. The refractive index and extinction coefficient of the copolymer films were calculated from the reflectance spectra by using non-linear curve fitting methods and the composition-structure-optical properties relationships were evaluated. Humidity-sensing properties of the films were studied by measuring reflectance spectra of the films at a relative humidity range from 5 to 95%RH. The implementation of the copolymer films as optical sensors of humidity is justified and discussed.
