Nano-Photonics and Opto-Fluidics on Bio-Sensing



Optofluidics is the integration of optical and microfluidic systems to achieve novel functionalities. An important ability of optofluidics is the manipulation, assembly, and patterning of objects of interest in a microfluidic environment. Recent advances in nanophotonics have introduced exciting methods for biological and chemical sensing with single molecule sensitivities. Therefore, the integration of nanophotonic sensors with optofluidic manipulation platforms is essential for sensing and monitoring of single cells and other biomaterials. In recent years, optoelectronic tweezers (OET) have emerged as a powerful technique for the manipulation of micro and nanoscopic particles. Here, we will present the capabilities of OET optofluidic platform for parallel manipulation of single cells and large-scale patterning of nanophotonic sensors.
