Abstract:The paper presents a general theory for sensing devices, relating noise and device parameters to resolution of modal index changes. The theory is applied to optimise the length of a few integrated optics sensing devices, being a Mac-Zehnder interferometers and two Fabry-Perot implementations. The results enable the determination of the maximum attainable resolution, and show the crucial importance of loss.
