In this paper, we propose a new design for Mach-Zehnder interferometer with different cross-sectional area than that for conventional silicon waveguide. The structure has a high sensitivity towards the surrounding media as compared to conventional silicon waveguides. This enabled using our design in different applications including optical sensing and modulation.
