Abstract

Sensitivity enhancement of a whispering-gallery-mode microsphere resonance-shift sensor by coating of a high-refractive index (RI) layer is examined for TM polarization. The enhancement of sensitivity in response to particle adsorption or a RI change of the surroundings at the optimized layer thickness is greater for the TM mode compared with the TE mode, but the TM mode requires a thicker layer. A particular choice of the layer thickness allows the TE and TM shifts to match. Matching of the resonance frequency of the two modes is also examined.
