Paper Abstract

In this paper we present a preliminary study to realize an integrated photonic crystal double cavities refractive index sensor calibrated in temperature. The studied conguration allows to realize a very compact device with only one interrogation channel, since the monitored signals are the cavities re ected signals. The sensitive elements used are the modulation of the cavities linewidth due to temperature and refractive index change, measured by means of the cavities detuning. The appeal of such type of devices, respect to the corresponding ones in optical bers, is the possibility to expand the conguration to create on the same chip the detector and the requested signal processing devices. The reliability of the proposed conguration is related to the interrogation technique, based on the radio-frequency phase modulation of the impinging laser light. This techniques was widely demonstrated in the last years1-4 and initially borrowed by the cavity frequency stabilization and locking Pound-Drever-Hall methods.5 Here we demonstrate as it is possible to use it for simultaneously detection of the detuning of two cavities with only one interrogation channel.
