We study the use of polymer gratings as light couplers into porous silicon planar waveguides for sensing applications. Experimental evidence of a guided mode in a grating-coupled porous silicon structure is presented, along with a study of its detuning due to waveguide infiltration with a chemical linker. All the measurements are in good agreement with simulations obtained by means of a Fourier modal method, where the porous silicon birefringence is considered. These results demonstrate thatdoi:10.1063/1.3043579 fatcat:46k72ez4qffixkbslp7n44bwxm
