Integrated optical directional coupler biosensor

Luff, B.J., Harris, R.D., Wilkinson, J.S., Wilson, R. and Schiffrin, D.J. (1996) Integrated optical directional coupler biosensor Optics Letters, 21, (8), pp. 618-620.

Record type: Article


We present measurements on biomolecular binding reactions, using a new type of integrated optical biosensor based on a planar directional coupler structure. The device is fabricated by Ag+-Na+ ion-exchange in glass and definition of the sensing region is achieved by use of transparent fluoropolymer isolation layers formed by thermal evaporation. The suitability of the sensor for application to the detection of environmental pollutants is considered.
