Polymer microrings for biosensing in the visible and near-IR wavelength region

Research Area: Lab-on-a-chip label-free biosensors

Main Researcher: Rodica Morarescu

Polymer ring resonators have the potential of being extremely cheap to fabricate. Moreover, when they are operated in the visible wavelength range, they can be combined with cheap off-the-shelf light sources and detectors, resulting in very cheap read-out instruments.

This research takes place in collaboration with Dalian University, China, which provides the polymer.
