We present an efficient and highly alignment-tolerant light coupling and distribution system for a multichannel Si3 N4 /Si O 2 single-mode photonics sensing chip. The design of the input and output couplers and the distribution splitters is discussed. Examples of multichannel data obtained with the system are given.
