Flat fiber: the flexible format for distributed lab-on-a-chip

Flat fiber: the flexible format for distributed lab-on-a-chip
Integrated optical devices offer dense, multifunctional capability in a single robust package but are rarely considered compatible with the fields of remote or distributed sensing or long-haul 'one-dimensional' fibers. Here we aim to change that by introducing a 'flat-fiber' process that combines the advantages of existing low-cost fiber drawing with the functionality of planar lightwave circuits in a novel hybrid format. By taking this approach, we hope to extend beyond the limitations of traditional planar and fiber substrates - allowing exotic material compositions, device layouts, and local sensing functions to be distributed over extended distances with no coupling or compatibility concerns in highly functional distributed lab-on-a-chip devices.

Abstract

Integrated optical devices offer dense, multifunctional capability in a single robust package but are rarely considered compatible with the fields of remote or distributed sensing or long-haul 'one-dimensional' fibers. Here we aim to change that by introducing a 'flat-fiber' process that combines the advantages of existing low-cost fiber drawing with the functionality of planar lightwave circuits in a novel hybrid format. By taking this approach, we hope to extend beyond the limitations of traditional planar and fiber substrates - allowing exotic material compositions, device layouts, and local sensing functions to be distributed over extended distances with no coupling or compatibility concerns in highly functional distributed lab-on-a-chip devices.
