We investigate the fundamental limits and applications of optical sensing using nanophotonic structures. By using advanced nanophotonic concepts we engineer the spectral response of detectors and emitters to realize integrated spectrometers with optimized performance and minimum footprint. We further investigate a novel generation of optical sensors based on photonic-crystal nano-opto-mechanical structures, for application in nanoscale metrology and industrial process monitoring.
