Paper Abstract

In this work the Guided Beam Deflection Method is introduced as a potential tool to design a variety of low-cost IO sensors. A theoretical analysis of the propagation and deflection of confined Gaussian beams in slab waveguides is given. The proposed method is compared to interferometric techniques in terms of sensitivity. It is found that both techniques have sensitivities of the same order of magnitude, however, IO beam deflection sensors may be less expensive than interferometric ones.
