Paper Abstract

In this paper, a slotted photonic crystal nanobeam cavity (SPCNC) based sensor has been proposed. The design consists of two rows of parabolically tapered holes and a discontinuous periodic slot in between the two rows of holes. The idea behind the discontinuous slot is to confine light tightly in the low refractive index medium of the structure and thereby increase the sensitivity of the sensor. The slot parameters and the radii of the tapered holes are optimized to achieve a very high Q-factor and sensitivity in the order of ~2.1×106 and 512 nm/refractive index unit respectively. Hence, the proposed structure can be considered as an ideal platform for lab-on-chip gas sensors.
