The synthesis of Ag-doped ZnO nanorod employing hydrothermal process over modified cladd optical fiber is reported. The developed material is characterized using X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transformed infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), and Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET)analysis to evaluate the morphology and the nature of nanorod formed. The initial performance of the coated modified clad optical fiber toward detection of ammonia gas in aqueous solution is also presented. The sensing performance revealed that the developed material possess improved sensitivity toward ammonia gas at room temperature compared to Ag doped nanowires containing optical fiber sensor.
