Paper Abstract

Mid-IR spectrometers with adequate resolution for chemical sensing and identification are typically large, heavy, and require sophisticated non-stationary optical components. Such spectrometers are limited to laboratory settings. We propose an alternative based on semiconductor micro-fabrication techniques. The device consists of several enabling parts: a compact broad-band IR source, photonic waveguides, a photon-to-surface-plasmon transformer, a surfaceplasmon sample-interaction region, and an array of silicon ring-resonators and detectors to analyze the spectrum. Design considerations and lessons learned from initial experiments are presented.
