Cutting-Edge Optofluidics Theories, Techniques, and Practices

Add novel functionalities to your optical design projects by incorporating state-of-the-art microfluidic technologies and tools. Co-written by industry experts, Optofluidics: Fundamentals, Devices, and Applications covers the latest functional integration of optical devices and microfluidics, as well as automation techniques. 

This authoritative guide explains how to fabricate optical lab-on-a-chip devices, synthesize photonic crystals, develop solid and liquid core waveguides, use fluidic self-assembly methods, and accomplish direct microfabrication in solutions. The book includes details on developing biological sensors and arrays, handling maskless lithography, designing high-Q cavities, and working with nanoscale plasmonics. Research outcomes from the DARPA-funded Center for Optofluidics Integration are also discussed.

Discover how to:

  • Work with optofluidic sources, lenses, filters, switches, and splitters
  • Use dielectric waveguiding devices to input, move, and manipulate fluids
  • Integrate colloidal crystals and fibers with microfluidic systems
  • Develop bio-inspired fluidic lens systems and aspherical lenses
  • Deploy miniaturized dye lasers, microscopes, biosensors, and resonators
  • Analyze microfluidic systems using flow injection and fluorescent spectroscopy
  • Build optofluidic direct fabrication platforms for innovative microstructures
  • Accomplish optofluidic liquid actuation and particle manipulation
