Abstract

A novel MOEMS accelerometer based on grating coupler integrated with embossed diaphragm has been presented in this paper. The device uses intensity based measurements at a wavelength of 900 nm and has a range of 7g. With a silicon photo-detector of sensitivity -60dBm, this accelerometer gives a sensitivity of 25µg of external acceleration.
