In this work, a novel structure of an all-optical biosensor based on glass resonance cavities with high detection accuracy and sensitivity in two-dimensional photon crystal is designed and simulated. The free spectral range in which the structure performs well is about FSR = 630 nm. This sensor measures the concentration of glucose in human urine. Analyses to determine the glucose concentration in urine for a normal range (0~15 mg/dL) and urine despite glucose concentrations of 0.625, 1.25, 2.5, 5 and 10 g/dL in the wavelength range 1.326404~1.326426 μm have been conducted. The detection range is RIU = 0.2 × 10−7. The average bandwidth of the output resonance wavelengths is 0.34 nm in the lowest case. In the worst case, the percentage of optical signal power transmission is 77% with an amplitude of 1.303241 and, in the best case, 100% with an amplitude of 1.326404. The overall dimensions of the biosensor are 102.6 µm2 and the sensitivity is equal to S = 1360.02 nm/RIU and the important parameter of the Figure of Merit (FOM) for the proposed biosensor structure is equal to FOM = 1320.23 RIU−1.

1. Introduction

Photonic crystals consist of wave scatterers that are regularly arranged next to each other to form an interference pattern at more desirable angles [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10]. Thus, there are many similarities between a photon crystal and an array of identical antennas, so that it can be said that photon crystals are an array of very small antennas in a regular arrangement of one, two, or three-dimensional next to each other [11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20]. If hypothetical isotropic antennas were used for this purpose, we would have a network of antennas that, due to the destructive and constructive interference of the internal members of the network at different angles of the environment, could input power like an array of antennas scattered at certain different angles. However, if antennas with anisotropic scattering patterns are used, the scattering and product scattering pattern will be the same for the pattern of each of the antennas and the network interference pattern. However, there are some differences. When an array of antennas is fed to send power at a certain angle in the source photon crystals, it is the input wave signal that is scattered around by the scatter-makers. In addition, due to the fact that the most important field of work on photon crystals is the range of optical and infrared waves. Millimeters, unlike antenna arrays, used metals due to their large losses in the frequency range not being very common. In this way, photonic crystals can be thought of as arrays of dielectrics with definite geometric shapes (such as cubes) arranged in a regular arrangement [21,22,23,24,25,26,27,28,29,30].
Research into refractive index-based (RI) photon sensors has been enhanced recently, with the goal of further engineering research into novel structures that are appropriate for detecting diverse physical features such as temperature and pressure. In particular, researchers have significantly considered waveguide structures and PhC cavities for bioassay uses [31,32,33,34]. Moreover, two-dimensional (2D) photonic crystal (PC) nanopores have shown exceptional optical intensifiers that have both small modal volumes (V) and quality factors (Q). Therefore, their very high Q/V values offer various advantages for optical devices such as high resolution, high sensitivity, low operating energy, and progress in linear and nonlinear optical phenomena. High-quality nanopores have been used for a variety of applications such as selective wavelength filters, biosensors, optical pulse manipulators, and solid-state quantum electrodynamics [35].
The structure of medical sensors is used to detect biochemical, biological or disease systems and food safety [36,37]. Authors adopted two general approaches to various important diagnoses: (1) The use of conventional labels (e.g., enzyme labels) to show analytes; and (2) the use of noninvasive unlabeled techniques so that they require no marker for detecting analytes. The latter can be desirable because labels are not attached to the molecules, and the actual nature and data of the desired biomaterials would not change. Protein changes in the cells and target cell lines may be analyzed by biosensors in cancer research [38]. When testing the blood glucose levels, diabetic cases experience bleeding that would be very uncomfortable and painful. According to the proposed biosensor structure in the present article, human urine could be used to test glucose due to its simplification and accessibility in comparison to the blood testing [39]. Moreover, the limit of such a diagnosis is very low because in human tears, glucose is 50 to 100 times less than in blood; by reducing the volume it can be measured in a shorter time [40]. Biosensors are a very promising platform for the development of on-chip laboratory devices. In addition, biosensors have been shown to be largely sensitive and may be readily constructed or integrated with other electrical components and can quickly and effectively detect DNA and biomolecules, as well as proteins for the early detection of disease. This article discusses the most common of these diseases and reduces mortality when diagnosed early.
The concentration of glucose in urine affects the physical properties of human urine, including surface tension, gravity, viscosity, and defect index. There is no glucose in the urine of the human body under normal conditions, or is in the range 0~15 mg/dL. On the one hand, glycosuria refers to the presence of glucose in the urine and the average level of blood glucose ranges from 165 to 180 mg/dL (mg/dL). Moreover, hypoglycemia represents a lower glucose concentration in the blood (<40 mg/dL) but hyperglycemia is a high level of glucose as well as a concentration of 270–360 mg/dL in blood sugar, which indicates diabetes. Photon measurement technology allows new measurements to be made by careful analyses to detect glucose concentration in urine. Therefore, the refractive index of urine samples and photonic crystal bandgap structures can be used to detect glucose [41].
To survive, human bodies need oxygen and food. However, just the presence of oxygen in the lungs and food in the stomach are not sufficient to survive. In fact, oxygen and food must be supplied to all parts of the body. The blood is responsible for delivering them to the whole body by flowing in a tube known as vein. Then, the heart pumps and circulates the blood in the vein. Almost 7%–8% of the weight of the body consists of blood so that, on average, five liters of the body’s volume is made of blood in adults [42]. Blood resembles a red ink and includes different materials. WBCs, platelets, plasma, and red blood cells (RBCs) make up the components of human blood. However, the fluid part of the blood is not red. Blood redness is caused by the presence of RBC. RBC takes oxygen from the lung and carries it to other parts of the body. Furthermore, the fluid part of the blood is referred to as the plasma, most of which is formed of water. The basic function of plasma is to bring healthy food to each part of the body as well as eliminate the waste products. Blood disorders include leukemia, hemorrhage, lymphoma, anemia, and malaria. Blood counts, blood smears, bone marrow biopsies, and comb tests have been considered the most common blood tests [43,44].

2. Optical Biosensor

According to previous research, the rotation of the dielectric functions of a photonic crystal would be broken when there are several points and linear defects in its periodic lattice structures, which allow them to direct and limit light at several light wavelength scales. In particular, when defects enter a certain point in PhC-arranged networks, which possibly form a PhC nanopore enclosed by the reflection of the distributed boundaries. Actually, the new space provided in the center of the PhC network would support a light mode with a frequency in the photonic band (PBG). Hence, light may be “trapped” there for numerous field oscillation cycles, making it possible to confine stronger spatial and temporal light and extend the life of potentially long photons in a PhC cavity [45,46].
In this section, the proposed basic structure is designed and simulated. There is an optical gap created in the TM polarization mode. Therefore, we use the photon bandwidth diagram in terms of saturation r/a for the polarization mode TM using the flat wave clamp (PWE) method for obtaining the best radius of the dielectric rods, for which the photon band width is the maximum. The constant value of the network n = 600 nm is chosen and thus the radius of the dielectric rods employed in the structure is n = 96 nm. Moreover, the refractive index is n = 3.4 (Figure 1a). In addition, the widest band for the filling ratio is r/a = 0.2 in ranges a/λ = 0.285~0.446. In addition, the operating wavelength of the photon crystal at this bandwidth is λ = 1.12–1.75. Figure 1b depicts the input signal of the structure for several pulses that specifies the bandgap range for which the input light signal can propagate in the direction of the waveguides (Table 1).
We designed this new biosensor structure in two dimensions of photon crystal. Therefore, the grid structure was selected as a triangle. With regard to Figure 2, the sensor performance is determined according to the cavities filled with urine samples, all of which provide a specific resonant wavelength depending on the glucose concentration. The resonant cavity is made of glass with a refractive index of nG = 1.5, which is marked in red in the center of the structure. The cavity radius equals RC = 200 nm. Oval and blue dielectric rods with pink rods select the wavelength of intensification and a reduction of bandwidth, which naturally increases the biosensor sensitivity. Adjusting the radius of the red resonance cavity, depending on the application of the biosensor, causes the desired resonance wavelength to change and be transmitted to the output waveguides. Finally, the structure’s width and length are the same, with a square structure, and its total area is 102.6 µm2.

3. Materials and Methods

Simulations are related to the structure of the all-optical sensor using the finite difference method in the time domain for the two-dimensional model of R.soft software in a full-wave and band structure mode environment. The grid size (Δx, Δz) in the FDTD solution method is selected as an a/16 equal to 31.25 nm. The amount of time steps must be equal to the formula number for achieving a steady-state in simulating this structure (1). Therefore, the time step equals Δt = 0.18125 µs in this simulation, and the PML Width value would be selected to be 500 nm. The starting point in the FDTD solution method follows Maxwell’s equations. Equation (1) represents the amount of the light emitted in a photon crystal that solves Maxwell’s electro-magnetic equations.
Ñ × ( 1 ε Ñ × H ) = ( ω C ) 2 H ,
where ε = η2 and η is the refractive index and ω represents the frequency. As seen, the frequency “ω” has an inverse proportionality to the dielectric function. FWHM shows the average value of the width of the optical signal and Q.f implies the quality factor calculated in Equation (2). Equation (3) also shows the calculation of the sensitivity of the sensor that the rate of change of resonance wavelengths is obtained on the refractive index of the samples used inside the nanocavity.
Q . f = λ 0 F W H M
S = Δ λ 0 Δ R I nm RIU .
λ0 is the resonant frequency of the output signal of the structure. λ0 indicates the difference observed between the resonant frequency of both output signals of the biosensor. ΔRI represents the differences between the samples’ refractive index that were applied in the above structure.
One of the important parameters employed for describing the ability of the measurement of a sensor is found by considering the full width at half-maximum (FWHM) and the sensitivity parameter, which is an important parameter of the shape of the fit (FOM). It is calculated from (4).
F O M = S F W H M
The light signal entering the structure is entered into the structure by a tunable laser source with a continuous wave, and at the output of the structure, a time monitor receives and analyzes the light signal. To calculate the refractive index of the analytes that were applied in the structure, the refractometer with a measuring range of 1.3306 to 1.5284 is used [47]. A cytometer scan [48], scattering [49], and optical coherence tomography [50] have been introduced as some other methods for calculating refractive index. Finally, we placed water (RI ¼ 1.33) as a base element for setting 0 and, consequently, the corresponding analyzer on the refractometer prism to calculate the refractive index.

4. Results and Discussion

In the proposed biosensor, several elements of blood, such as RBC, blood plasma, WBC and Bovine Serum Albumin, as well as hemoglobin, would be detected and the detection is carried out by the resonant wavelength method. The process of biotin ling protein attachment to streptavidin would be used to study the interactions of the strongly sensitive proteins. Moreover, it is applied in biotechnology for detecting proteins [51]. It should be noted that the resulting streptavidin-biotin system shows the refractive index of 1.45. Furthermore, hemoglobin takes oxygen from the lung and carries carbon dioxide to the lung, which may be utilized to diagnose thalassemia with a fractured index of 1.38. Consequently, plasma, or blood fluid, is applied for transporting different materials via the blood that may be employed to diagnose cardiovascular disease (CVD) [52]. Its RI value equals 1.35. As mentioned earlier, RBC is largely utilized for carrying oxygen and detecting anemia with a refractive index of 1.40. Moreover, WBC, with a fractured index of 1.36, helps the protection of the body against several infections and is used for diagnosing infections, birth defects, medication, and bone marrow dysfunction. Considering Figure 3, the resonant wavelengths for the four different elements of human blood are obtained by our new biosensor.
Here, the amount of glucose concentration would be determined in human urine. As seen in the table, the refractive index of the urine ranges from 1.332 to 1.340. The first-time urine prototype shows an average refractive index in the range 0.0019 ± 1.336 as well as the random samples 0.0017 ± 1.335. Moreover, the urine refractive index has shown high sensitivity to the changes in its concentration of glucose. A very high refractive index would be observed in a diabetic person [53]. The normal glucose level in normal persons ranges between 0 and 15 mg/dL. Table 2 reports the refractive index values for greater glucose concentration, respectively.
In this section, a specific resonant wavelength is selected by the cavity in relation to the glucose density in the urine via putting the samples of human urine in the main glass resonance cavity of the proposed biosensor. With regard to Figure 4, both samples of human urine that had normal densities of 0 to 15 mg/dL and 0.625 mg/dL were detected in the structure so that all of them had a separate resonant wavelength that is very close to each other; the transmission power efficiency in the normal state is 91% higher than in the other state, 98%, which causes the separation of the normal person from the sick person. The sensitivity of this detection equals S = 2 nm/RIU. Finally, the figure of merit form equals FOM = 1.913 RIU−1.
In Figure 4b, the detection of the two densities of glucose 2.5 and 1.25 mg/dL in human administration is shown. The sensitivity has been shown to be S = 2 nm/RIU and FOM = 2.285 RIU−1 for this case. Transmission power efficiency is 84% and 83% for the first and second cases, respectively. Figure 4c shows a difference between 5 mg/dL and 10 mg/dL glucose. The percentage of transfer power is equal to 81% for 5 mg/dL mode and 100% for 10 mg/dL mode. The parameters of the refractive index, quality coefficient, resonant wave-length, and sensitivity are calculated for several values of glucose concentration in human urine. Table 3 shown the parameters of refractive index, quality factor, sensitivity, as well as resonant wavelength for different values of glucose concentration in human urine.
In this section, we will discuss the effects of the cavity resonance radius. These effects on transmission power efficiency and resonant wavelengths have been investigated. As shown in Figure 5a, when the RC radius reaches 200 nm, the percentage of transmission power enhances, but if it reaches 300 nm RC, the transmission power to the structure’s output declines. Based on the above comparison, the most acceptable radius for the intensification of the cavity equals RC = 200 nm and RC = 300 nm. Enhancing the resonance radius of the cavity causes the resonance wavelength to reach a maximum of 200 nm and 300 nm. These changes are calculated for a refractive index of 1.36. In Figure 6b, the resonance wavelength has reached its maximum value at RC = 300 nm. Moreover, the transmission power has been shown in the radius of RC = 200 nm at best. The purpose of making such changes is to obtain the best radius for the cavity of the resonant. Put differently, it is possible to detect a sensor for several samples with the use of the transmission power efficiency and resonance wavelength.
Figure 6a the behavior of the biosensor structure at different refractive indices is calculated. With the enhanced refractive index, the resonant wavelength increases linearly and the transmitting power decreases linearly, too. The reason for using the cavitation refractive index changes and its impact on the sensor output is to detect the most acceptable performance of the structure in terms of transmission power. For example, when a sample with a refractive index of RI = 1.41 is detected by this sensor, we will reach the maximum resonance wavelength in the structure. If a normal person’s blood sample with a refractive index of RI = 1.35 is used in this sensor, it will reach maximum transmitting power. Figure 6b the effects of changes in the reflective index of the resonance cavity on the parameters of FWHM as well as the quality factor are calculated. As can be seen in this figure, the changes of these two parameters are opposite to each other. Therefore, the quality factor parameter in the proposed sensor structure for the blood sample with the refractive index of 1.368 has the lowest value and reaches the maximum value at a refractive index of 1.38. Hence, the parameter changes of the FWHM with changes in the refractive index are the opposite of the changes of the quality factor. It reaches its maximum value (worst case). Therefore, for example, the blood sample with a reflective index of 1.368 is the best average value of the bandwidth of the intensified wavelength.
Different wavelengths are used in the input signal source to check the sensor performance in both active and inactive modes. Figure 7a the sensor operation in the inactive state is shown schematically and in the output diagram of the structure. For this case, for example, the refractive index of the resonant nano-cavity is set to RI = 1.36, and a wavelength other than the resonant wavelength is used for this case, which makes the sensor select no light signal transmission and does not amplify the wavelength and the sensor is inactive. Figure 7b shows the structure as fully active. To achieve this, place the wavelength of the input source exactly on the wave length of the central cavity, which enables 100% of the input light signal to be amplified by the cavity so that the rods around the cavity can be chosen and amplified, and finally transferred to the output wave-guide.
Finally, to determine the superiority of the proposed structure over other similar structures, in Table 4, the major features of the all-optical biosensor structure include quality factor, transmission power, sensor sensitivity and figure of merit compared to the previous structure.

5. Conclusions

As mentioned earlier, our new sensor could detect a person with various ailments from a normal individual using blood and urine, as well as human tear fluid samples. Detectable diseases through the proposed sensor are blood cancer cells and the detection of different elements. In the blood, the distinction between the normal and diabetic cells is the concentration of glucose in human urine. Moreover, the key performance of nano cavitation detection is the resonance at the center of the structure. Due to the significance of sensitivity and accuracy features in designing the sensors, the average bandwidth of output intensification wavelengths in the lowest case equals 0.34 nm. In addition, the quality coefficient of this new sensor in the worst conditions equals 3822.03 and the power transmission percentage of the optical signal is between 77% to 100%. The parameter with the importance of sensitivity in the best case equals S60 = 1360.02 nm/RIU and the important parameter of the degree of suitability for the proposed sensor structure is equal to FOM = 1320.23 ± 118 RIU−1. The sensor is designed as one of the most complete sensors in terms of scope of operation and high sensitivity, which can detect different patients from three types of blood, tears, and urine samples.
