Abstract
We propose the design of an integrated symmetric Mach-Zehnder interfer ometer based on ARROW structure, compatible with the silicon processin g technology, for sensing refractive indices of liquids. The interfere nce at the output depends on the refractive index of the liquid, and i s studied by applying the finite difference method to the reference an d active arms of the interferometer.
