The fourth volume in the series of four books which comprises a comprehensive treatment of the subject for researchers and industrial users in the field. The text explores the applications of the technology and systems that rely upon it with a particular emphasis on environmental and chemical sensing.The mechanism of prism coupling is illustrated in Fig. 6.5. The thin air gap (which is a function of the state of the surface) between the prism and the waveguide allows overlap of the prism and waveguide modes and hence coupling of lightanbsp;...
