Abstract

The stationary wave integrated Fourier transform spectrometer (SWIFTS) is based on the sampling of a stationary wave using nano-scattering centers on the surface of a channel waveguide. Single nano-scale scattering centers above the waveguide surface will radiate the sampled signal with wide angular distribution, which is not compatible with the buried detection area of infrared (IR) detectors, resulting in crosstalk between pixels. An implementation of multiple diffraction nano-grooves (antenna) for each sampling center is proposed as an alternative solution to improve directivity towards the detector pixel by narrowing the scattering angle of the extracted light. Its efficiency is demonstrated from both simulated and measured far-field radiative patterns exhibiting a promising method to be used for the future integrated IR-SWIFTS.
