A new variant of the Vernier-effect based sensor reported in ref. 1 is introduced. Both sensor types may show a huge index induced spectral shift. It will be shown in a poster presentation that with such sensors, as well as with surface plasmon based sensors, the constraints on the spectral resolution of the read out are strongly relaxed, but the sensitivity is not increased (unlike what is often reported in the literature).
