Abstract

An alternative waveguide sensing mechanism in which the intensity of the in-coupled light mode was used as a transduction parameter, was analyzed. The alternative transduction mechanism, which was based on a simple measurement of the mode intensity, avoided the expensive angular detection employed in conventional waveguide sensors. When the waveguide was applied close to cutoff, the guided mode peak-intensity was found to depend strongly on the cover refractive index. This property was employed as the alternative transduction mechanism to the mode peak-angle transduction.
