Paper Abstract

An analytical derivation is provided giving the normalized waveguide thickness at which a corrugation grating defined at the surface of a graded index slab waveguide has a maximum radiation coefficient for TE and TM modes. This condition is also that for a maximum sensing sensitivity for biochemical species placed on top of the slab waveguide.
