Abstract

We propose a new concept of a distributed sensing system using a nano-waveguide and an array waveguide. The small change in physical quantity affects the change in device parameters such as refractive index or length, which is relatively absorbed and observed by the resonant wavelength. In principle, the dense wavelength separation is generated by using a soliton pulse propagating within a ring resonator system, whereas a resonant signal can be stored within the nano-waveguide, i.e. a transducer, which is formed by the sensing device. Induced change in the resonant signal at each wavelength occurs, and can be detected by using the optical spectrum analyzer. Such a proposed device is suitable to perform the measurements in the nano-scale regime such as force, stress and temperature. Moreover, the distributed or multiplexed sensing applications are also available using the nano-waveguide sensing device incorporating the array waveguide, which is discussed in details. Quantum measurement using the same system is also described.
