Abstract
We present and optical methane sensor that employs a Mach-Zehnder interferometer formed on a planar waveguide. The overclad of only one arm of interferometer is partially etched up to the boundary between the core and clad. Then, the etched region is coated by SnO2 thin layer and the sensor module is annealed at high temperature. When the fabricated sensor module is exposed to methane gas, the interferogram is changed and quickly saturated in 10 seconds.
