Paper Abstract

In this work, interferometric silicon chips with monolithically-integrated light-emitting devices coupled to co-integrated monomodal waveguides shaped as Young interferometers through mainstream silicon technology, are presented. Although the light sources are broad-band emitters, Young interferometry is possible through filtering. Chips with arrays of ten multiplexed interferometers have been employed for the label-free determination of pesticides in drinking water currently achieving detection limits in the ng/ml range.
