1 is devoted to three-layer fiber waveguide sensors which consist of a silica glass substrate (S), a metal layer (M) and an aqueous media (A) denoted as SMA sensor or chalcogenide glass
substrate (Ch), and a metal layer (M) and aqueous media (A) denoted as ChMA sensor.
In a paper appearing in the journal Applied Physics Letters, Semouchkina and colleagues describe developing a nonmetallic cloak that uses identical glass resonators made of chalcogenide glass
, a type of dielectric material (one that does not conduct electricity).
MIRIPSHE aims to achieve this goal by integrating rare earth doped chalcogenide glass
into a silicon platform in order to exploit the superior optical and electronic properties of these two materials, respectively, for unparalleled bio-chemical sensing for health and environmental monitoring.
The researches tested this process using different materials such as, magnesium fluoride, chalcogenide glass
and even tape.
