Abstract

Integrated photonics is a proven platform for physical and chemical sensing. It offers miniaturised solutions that are suited for use in extreme environments, including strong EM-fields, EM-pulses and contact with flammable materials, often far exceeding electronic sensors in this regard. This review looks into direct UV-written planar Bragg grating technology and its application to integrated photonic sensors. The platform has been demonstrated widely for measurement of physical properties such as temperature, pressure and strain. In addition, by using an evanescent interaction, refractive index can be measured allowing for chemical and biochemical detection. Further to this, the platform has recently been utilised in quantum information processing, where quantum gate operations and single photon detection has been shown.
