The multiple functions and potential applications of nanotechnology have become a necessary and powerful tool in scientific work everyday. Nanotechnology is interdisciplinary science involving physics, chemistry, biology, materials science and wide range of engineering disciplines. His versatility has led to an increasing use in wide range of fields. For example, electronic engineering has shown an interest growing in the design of nanodevices due to continued miniaturization of them. The investigations have focused on the manufacture of electronic circuits and their applications complex systems, in addition to this, nanotechnology already plays an important role in development of new materials with tailored features and chemical properties, so their study is important today. Nanosensors have been under investigation for some institutions in recent years. A nanosensor is a device built on an atomic scale based on measurements nanometers, whose purpose is mainly to obtain data on the atomic scale transfer so they can be easily analyzed. In this work We study wave propagation in a low-dimensional planar nano-waveguide, to establish the principle of operation of an optical structure to propose the design of a nanosensor.
