Abstract

We introduce on-chip interferometers in which the spatial output interference pattern is observed along a detection plane. We show that by using photonic crystals with strong dispersive properties in these devices, highly sensitive interferometers can be realized. We discuss potentials of these interferometers in spectroscopy and sensing applications using their strong wavelength sensitivity and their ability to spatially map the spectral information of an input signal.
