Numerical analysis of integrated photonics structures for hemoglobin sensor application

Przemysław Struk


This paper presents sensor structure dedicated for determination the key properties of blood – concentration level and oxidation level. The sensor structure is based integrated optics circuit with diamond-based planar waveguide including prism and grating coupler. The paper is focused on numerical analysis of selected properties of sensor structure for optimization sensing parameters.
