We will review the state of the art for on-chip, Raman-based sensing using waveguides including our recent work with sorbent-coated waveguides for trace gas sensing showing parts-per-billion limits of detection. We will show that signal enhancements due to scattering that takes place in the evanescent field coupled with a thin hypersorbent polymer coating can yield Raman efficiencies which are nine orders of magnitude larger than traditional micro-Raman techniques. We will also discuss challenges with gas component discrimination and in moving toward a fully integrated photonic circuit architecture for handheld Raman-based trace gas sensors.
