Power budget analysis for waveguide enhanced Raman spectroscopy

Wang, Zilong, Zervas, Michalis N., Bartlett, Philip N. and Wilkinson, James S. (2015) Power budget analysis for waveguide enhanced Raman spectroscopy At Optical Wave and Waveguide Theory and Numerical Modelling Workshop (OWTNM 2015), United Kingdom. 17 - 18 Apr 2015. 1 pp.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Poster)


Surface-enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS) is a powerful tool for chemical analysis which can suffer from poor repeatability due to the sensitive nature of plasmonic interactions. Waveguide- enhanced Raman spectroscopy (WERS) is emerging as a competitive analytical tool which avoids nanostructured noble metal surfaces but which potentially provides comparable surface enhancements in a sensor format [1,2]. Comparison of these approaches suffers from ill-defined definitions of surface enhancement. We present a power budget analysis of WERS, relating the received power in a Raman emission line to the incident pump laser power, using waveguide surface intensity and Raman cross-section, allowing WERS optimisation and clear comparison of surface-enhanced techniques.
