Abstract

An evanescent field-sensing configuration, based on a periodically segmented waveguide, is proposed and analyzed. It has advantages over existing configurations that relate to its simple realization (in single-step lithography). The sensitivity and operating point can be controlled easily with geometric parameters alone, which facilitates realization of more complex sensing arrays.
