Paper Abstract

An important problem of investigation of the air and water contamination by the mid-IR spectroscopy is discussed. A model of evanescent wave sensor made of a multimode waveguide transparent in the mid-IR spectral range is developed. Transmittance and sensitivity of a sensing element consisting of an input chalcogenide waveguide and a sensing waveguide depend on distribution of the guided modes amplitudes in the sensing waveguide. We have demonstrated that excitation of higher-order modes is important for optimal performance of such a sensor.
