Abstract

We designed and fabricated multilayer metal/metal-oxide surface relief diffractive grating structures by growing alternating Pt and SnO x layers. Optical interrogation at 633 nm reveals the temperature dependence of their reflection and transmission diffractive effects. This function is explored here in the context of a remote, spatially localized, photonic temperature sensing operation, achieving sensitivity of 10% per ° C for the zeroth-order in the transmission mode. The experimental demonstration is found to be in good agreement with the results of rigorous coupled wave analysis of the composite metal/metal-oxide element.
