Abstract
This study demonstrates the high sensitivity of high Q polymeric planar waveguide refractive index sensors used on the evanescent field. A Fabry-Perot Bragg gratings cavity was fabricated with a cavity size of 5 mm and 7 mm, respectively. The spectra of light reflected from fabricated Bragg gratings, which were butt-joined, were measured and compared with different indices of surrounding media. It was confirmed the FP Bragg gratings cavity is more sensitive than the single Bragg grating. The sensor developed in this study shows much promise in the application of biomedical diagnostics such as a bio-sensor and/or environmental monitoring systems.
