Abstract

This paper presents theoretical analysis of a silicon based micro-machined differential pressure sensor using a square shaped clamped diaphragm and surface relief waveguide Bragg gratings embedded in a Mach Zehnder interferometer (MZI). Each of the arms of the MZI has one surface relief Bragg grating embedded in it. Each grating is mounted at the edge of a micro-machined diaphragm so as to obtain maximum stress. Coupled mode theory has been used to design the directional coupler to equally couple the light into both of the arms of MZI and also to design and analyse the shifts in the wavelengths of the Bragg gratings due to applied pressures. The wavelength shift difference of the two gratings gives the differential pressure sensitivity and also eliminates the noise due to temperature variation. Simulation results indicate that the differential pressure measurement sensitivity is 0.2 pm/Pa.
