A simple and compact lensed dual-fiber probe having high collection efficiency for fluorescence signal is demonstrated. A lensed dual-fiber probe, composed of two parallel fibers and a common focusing lens, was simply implemented by the electric arc discharge method. The performance of the proposed probe was evaluated experimentally by measuring the reflection powers and fluorescence spectra of well-known targets and a fresh ginkgo leaf. The experimental result shows that the proposed probe provides a six-fold increase in the collection efficiency compared to measurements without the lens. In addition, the signal collection occurs very close to the probe surface with a suitably localized depth.
