Antiresonant Reflecting Optical Waveguides for Biosensing Applications

Over the last few years, much effort has been devoted to the development of so-called lab-on-chip (LOC) systems that are based on optical detection methods. Applications of these systems include environmental monitoring, health care, biosensing, and industrial analysis. To carry out complete assays with LOC devices, it is necessary to integrate a wide variety of microfluidic and optical function components onto the same microchip.
