»IZM Photonics: IN OPTICAL INTERCONNECTS WE TRUST« -On-chip Glass Microbottles for Biosensing
Speaker: Dr. Alethea Vanessa Zamora Gómez
3D optical microresonators made out of glass fibres are very attractive for biosensing applications. Their small size and high quality enable the detection of multiple target biomolecules with high sensitivity despite their compact footprint. However, significant challenges remain associated with efficient ways to couple the light to the resonator and their robust integration into a practical cartridge. In the webinar of June 2022, we present a high-precision on-chip assembly process for a type of special resonator – called microbottles – developed by the transnational “PoC-BoSens” project. The proposed assembly process can also be adapted for other relevant configurations, such as spheres, cylinders (solid rods), or capillaries, providing a modular and cost-effective integration strategy.
