Abstract: Luminescence sensors are based on the determination of emitted intensity or decay time when a luminophore is in contact with its environment. Changes of the environment, like temperature or analyte concentration cause a change in the intensity and decay rate of the emission. Typically, since the absolute values of the measured quantities depend on the specific sensing element and scheme used, a sensor needs two inputs to work: 1) a description of the dependence of the quantity to be determined, for example the analyte concentration, from sensed quantity, for example the decay time. This can be done by analytical expressions or by a look-up table. 2) A calibration of the sensor at known reference conditions. In this work we explored a new approach based on machine learning for luminescence sensing. Without using any model and a-priori information about the intensity decay characteristics, we developed a neural network (NN) to determine an analyte concentration. The new NN was then used to realize an optical oxygen sensor based on luminescence quenching. After training the NN on synthetic data, we tested it by applying it to measured data. The new approach allowed to achieve an accuracy in the oxygen determination of 4000 ppm vol O2, being limited mainly by the accuracy of the data used for the training. With this work we demonstrated that the new approach based on machine learning allows the development of an optical luminescence oxygen sensor without any analytical model of the sensing element and sensing scheme used.
