Abstract
Silicon photonics circuit has been widely investigated in recent years, due to its advantage in the small footprint, high density integration and compatible with CMOS pilot line. In this paper, a compact, highly-sensitivity NaCl concentration sensor is experimentally demonstrated, based on the micro-ring resonators. The sensor circuit is composed of grating couplers, bus waveguide and micro-ring resonators. The width of optical waveguides is 450nm, with a thickness of 220nm. The chip was fabricated in imec through the ePIXfab multi-project wafer service supported by our group, which is compatible with the CMOS process line. The chip shows high sensitivity, as high as of more than 80nm/RIU, which corresponding to a detection limit of 1.6e-4 by using optical spectrum analyzer.
