Paper Abstract

In this paper are presented numerical optimizing investigations of planar polarimetric interferometer made by K+-Na+ ion exchange in glass for sensor applications. Two cases are considered: phase modulation of guided light waves caused by refractive index changes of the waveguide cover for applications of the polarimetric interferometer as refractometers or chemical sensors, and phase changes induced by nanometers of a dielectric layer separated from the waveguide by an air gap of the width below wavelength of light for using of the polarimetric interferometer as an acoustical transducer and pressure or displacement sensor.
