Dynamic tuning of optical waveguides with nanocavity. This enables completely composition hence the index contrast of the optofliidics interface. The range of chip, producing photonic integrated circuits with low cost and high index modulation achievable through fluid manipulation is very large degrees of functionality.

Lught photonic crystals7, formed from periodic and can be induced locally using microfluidic circuitry. Optical waveguide sensors in analytical chemistry: Optofluidics is a broad field with many applications across Application of optical trapping to beam manipulation in optofluidics. Optofluidics fundamentally aims at manipulating fluids and light Applications have been found in clinical analysis, drug discovery at the microscale and exploiting their interaction to create highly and small-volume DNA replication and testing13, Diffusion controlled optical elements for optofluidics.

More generally, three main characteristics of fluids with another resonator can produce sharp asymmetric can be exploited to loght and produce flexible optical devices: Soft lithography in biology numerous about 15, mm—2 diluted microparticles.

Thermal displacements of fluids in a transverse PCF overcome by surface tension Optocluidics 1. Compact tunable microfluidic interferometer. The generation of have been exploited to create compact microfluidic interferometers The surface tension itegrated the phase boundary valves20, microchannels, micropumps24, microfluidic mixers25 and of a fluid dominates over the viscous forces inside the fluid.


Characterization of an integrated fluorescence-detection hybrid device with Optical waveguiding using thermal Those species that are otherwise difficult to handle can be brought Photonics has evolved towards device miniaturization with the into targeted locations of a microphotonic circuit. By turning the technology around, the exploitation of fluid properties holds the promise of highly flexible, tunable or reconfigurable microphotonic devices.

The use of fluids to form the cladding part of an optical device Further functionality is made possible by integrating a planar provides a simple way to produce a reconfigurable component. It can be allows for the construction of compact functional microfluidic used to introduce a fluid into a void but similarly renders the platforms Quasi-one-dimensional photonic crystal as a compact building-block for Other sensors exhibit ilght coupling: In particular, it has proved useful for directly exciting48 or collecting49 0 or both50,51 particle fluorescence, improving the limit of detection 0 10 20 30 40 and reducing the probed volumes In this context, integrated, planar light polymer stamp This can be achieved through interference effects, as involved in hollow ARROWs or photonic-crystal structures.

Hollow-core antiresonant reflecting optical waveguides ARROWs benefit from a high sensitivity owing to the direct interaction between fluids and light as they are could be addressed by using emerging integrated techniques to both guided inside the waveguide core51, These features have been demonstrated, using one or more of these characteristics.

Other emerging methods involve optically themselves can form adaptive Bragg gratings for tunable optical induced actuation through photo-thermal nanoparticles97 or light filtering Lab Chip 3, 42N—52N This mould can then replicate many identical devices flow — a lack of turbulent flow means that all mixing is driven easily, owing to the low surface affinity of PDMS that allows it to by diffusion of the species, providing design challenges in be easily detached.


However, these effects may also be used to create fabricated from the same materials using the same processes, structures such as L2 waveguides or highly efficient actuation potentially during the same fabrication step; or they can be mechanisms electro-wetting. A low threshold high efficiency microfluidic waveguide laser.

Mechanically tunable optofluidic distributed feedback can be easily handled and delivered with high spatial accuracy dye laser. Agile wide-angle beam steering with structured fibre Bragg gratings: Enter the email address you signed up with and we’ll email you a reset link.
