An UV linear variable optical filter-based micro-spectrometer
Paper i proceeding, 2010
This paper presents the design, fabrication and spectral measurements of an Ultra-Violet (UV) Linear Variable Optical Filter (LVOF)-based micro-spectrometer operating in the 300 nm - 400 nm wavelength range. The UV LVOF has been fabricated in an IC-Compatible process using resist reflow. Characterization by passing monochromatic light through the LVOF, shows high linearity of the profile. It is expected that using signal processing, spectral resolution better than 0.5 nm can be achieved with this UV LVOF. The filter provides the possibility to have a robust high-resolution micro-spectrometer in the UV on a CMOS chip.
