Abstract
We demonstrate an optical planar waveguide sensor that can be used to measure the direction and intensity of physical force. The interferometric structure, on which the proposed sensor is based, introduces an interference pattern in wavelength. Its phase is shifted by the external force. On the other hand, since the cross-sectional effective refractive index profile is asymmetric because of the core formed on one side of silica substrate, the phase shift appears with respect to the direction of the external force against the surface. Therefore, we can measure the direction and intensity of the applied force by monitoring the phase change.
