Abstract

One-dimensional ternary photonic crystals are suggested as refractometric sensing elements, for sensing very small refractive index changes of a medium. These one-dimensional ternary photonic crystals based refractometric sensing elements are not only remarkably smaller, but are also more sensitive than one-dimensional binary photonic crystal based sensing element recently suggested by researchers.
