Abstract

A new design of photonic crystal (PhC) for optical sensing using guided mode resonance (GMR) is presented. We theoretically show that angular sensitivity is inversely proportional to the group velocity of the probed mode and can be made arbitrarily high in a properly designed PhC. PhCs made in polycrystalline diamond on insulator are fabricated. The angular sensitivity dependence is validated. We measured modes with group velocity of c/80 at a wavelength of 800 nm. A sensitivity in the order of 500 ° per refractive index unit is inferred, a value much larger than the one usually encountered in PhCs.
