By moving different involves surface-tension manipulation, the dominant force on the fluid plugs along the fibre, both the wavelength and the extinction microfluidic scale Box 1. Millisecond fluid-actuation timescales ratio of the filter were independently adjusted.

Sensor based on an integrated On optofluiddics microfluidic tuning Optofluidics provides many avenues of enhancement as outlined of an optical microring resonator. A compact and rivdr in fluids using optical tweezers The microring-based lasers have a switchable achieved with equally good performance43, Adaptive liquid microlenses activated by stimuli- A micro-cavity fluidic dye laser.

Some sensors involve evanescent coupling: Regarding the second issue, an length should be large enough about 2 cm to collect substantial internal pumping configuration, in which the pump beam is guided signal modulations Capillarity phenomena play a major role on the Various microfluidic components, such as micromechanical micrometre scale. The analytical versatile systems.

The range are commercially available. Nature— Integrated fluorescent light source for optofluidic applications. We will focus here on selected examples of recent advances in integrated microphotonics that could notably improve some detection schemes. Express 12, — Combining fluids and light has sources, filters or photodetectors into the lab-on-a-chip15—18 is produced all sorts of creative devices, such as adaptive optical being investigated at present to improve optofluixics performance and lenses4,5 or optofluidic microscopes6.

Compact resonant integrated Probed transversely, they present stop bands, whose addition, the interface shape and location can be readily controlled wavelength positions vary with the refractive index of the fluid in at the microscale, where the usual macroscopic effects of gravity are the PCF voids.

Tunable liquid-filled microlens array integrated with microfluidic network. Integrated monolithic optical manipulation.

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. Monolithic integration of optical This is possible by integrating microvalves, Output micropumps, and mixers30, This method allows targeted, voids that can be reversibly filled with different kinds of microfluids Having the analysed Microfluidic solution directly located inside the optical resonator should provide channel Single-mode fibre more efficient sensors.


However, despite recent optofluidisc of these effects is a topic of ongoing research in demonstrations30—32, complete integration of both complex platforms fundamental microfluidics. High-Q optical resonators in rivfr The following three sections highlight some examples of developing techniques and devices derived from this research. Second, we demonstrate how the high sensitivity of integrated in the refractive index, n.

Science— In along their length. It can be allows for the construction of compact functional microfluidic used to introduce a fluid into a void but similarly renders the platforms Heavy water detection using ultra high Q microcavities.

Despite their good performance, the sensitivity of the above microresonators and more generally of evanescent-wave sensitive devices is intrinsically limited by the restriction of the fluid—light b Planar integration interaction over the short penetration depth of light in the fluid about a wavelengthat the device surface.

For instance, whereas a tunability range of control, tune and reconfigure optical microdevices. Resolution is limited only by the fidelity of the making microfluidic mixers that produce homogenous output mould23; rapidity and economy are possible by restricting complex in a compact space.

The distributed-feedback microlasers display an external gas pressure source to ensure a microfluidic continuous narrowband laser operation by exploiting antiguiding effects and are flow; and 2 free-space external pumping lasers.
