Method of detecting molecules and optical sensor
The present disclosure relates to an example method and optical sensor for detecting molecules of a particular substance by means of an optical sensor. Such an example method may include bringing the sensor into contact with a fluid to be analyzed, coupling light of a first wavelength into an optical resonator of the optical sensor, coupling light of a second wavelength into the same resonator or into a second optical resonator of the optical sensor, detecting, for each of the first and the second wavelengths, an optical signal coupled out of an optical path containing the respective resonator, varying an optical length of the respective resonator or the respective wavelength and detecting a broadening of this resonance indicating an absorption of the light fed into the respective resonator by molecules accumulated at the active layer of this resonator..
