We propose and experimentally demonstrate flexible one-dimensional polymer photonic crystal nanocavities with quality factors exceeding 10 for precision sensing of strain at experimentally measured values of 10−4. Relying on the cavity’s compact structure and polymer’s low Young’s modulus, the cavity’s displacement and the applied force are estimated as 0.94 nm and 55 nN, respectively. This flexible-nanocavity microsensor shows high linearity and repeatability. The microsensor concept is also… CONTINUE READING
