  • Optical ring resonators
  • Distributed feedback resonators
  • Fiber gratings
  • Fabry-Pérot interferometers
  • Mach-Zehnder interferometers
  • Michelson interferometer
  • Young interferometers
  • Spinning-disc interferometers
  • Photonic crystals
  • Micro/nanofibers and photonic wires
  • Slot waveguides
  • Folded waveguides
  • Metal clad waveguides
  • Reverse symmetry waveguides
  • Liquid core antiresonant reflecting optical waveguides

This book will interest researchers working in the area of bio-chemical detection and analysis. It will also serve as an excellent reference for graduate students to help acquaint them with new research in photonic bio-chemical sensors.
