Abstract

By coating a single-mode–multimode–single-mode (SMS) structure with a complex refractive index thin-film the central wavelength of the transmission and attenuation bands of the optical spectrum can be shifted. By adequate selection of multimode segment length and diameter, the thin-film thickness and the thin-film refractive index, the sensitivity of the device to the surrounding medium refractive index, the thickness of the thin-film or the refractive index of the thin-film can be optimized. Experimental results are corroborated numerically with the transfer matrix method.
