Heptagonal photonic crystal fiber based chemical sensor in THz regime
In this article, here is developed a novel TOPAS based heptagonal photonic crystal fiber (H-PCF) for the identification of various chemical substances in the terahertz frequency territory. The full-vector finite element method (FV-FEM) is used for the numerical investigation about the competence of the proposed PCF. Simulation results show the maximum relative sensitivity as well as less connement loss for various chemicals. Numerically processed outcomes apparent that the proposed sensor shows 63.24 %, 61.05 % and 60.03 % detecting reactions for focused analytes benzene, ethanol and water individually at 1 THz frequency. Major purposes is to use H-PCF as the application of chemical sensor in commercial sector to detect harmful chemicals.
