Abstract

A small spectroscope with 25 color sensors was fabricated by combining metamaterial color filters and Si photodiodes. The metamaterial color filters consisted of guided-mode resonant metal gratings with subwavelength two-dimensional periodic structures. Transmittance characteristics of the color filters were designed to obtain peak wavelengths proportional to grating periods. For each color sensor, a peak wavelength of the spectral sensitivity could be tuned in the range of visible wavelengths by adjusting each grating period. By performing spectrum reconstruction using Tikhonov regularization, the spectrum of an incident light was obtained from the signal of photodiodes. Several monochromatic lights were made incident on the fabricated device and the spectral characteristics of the incident light were reconstructed from the output signals obtained from the respective color sensors. The peak wavelengths of the reconstructed spectra were in good agreement with the center wavelengths of the monochromatic lights.
