Analysis and Design of Interferometric Sensor Circuits

  • Otto Schwelb


In recent years a large variety of optical circuits have been examined and proposed for sensing, filtering, channel separation, etc. Practically all of these circuits consist of the same basic building blocks, namely 2×2 or 3×3 couplers, mirrors and transmission lines. Until now each configuration has been treated as a separate entity. As the number of possible combinations is rather high, a plethora of articles appeared discussing the design equations and the performance characteristics of these systems.1–5
