Abstract
We present a sensor design based on a Mach-Zehnder interferometer utilizing sub-wavelength gratings (SWGs) that were included in the waveguide to compensate for the short optical path length and to provide phase modulation. According to 2D finite element method simulations, it is possible to achieve 3-fold enhancement in sensitivity and 50% increase in modulation frequency with the inclusion of SWGs in the sensing arm as well as in the reference arm.
