Paper Abstract

We demonstrate a way of light harvesting in integrated microfluidic chips fabricated by femtosecond laser micromachining. The architecture consists of waveguide arrays fabricated in the vicinity of the microchannel filled with a fluorescent organic solution (e.g., polyfluorene solution). Amplified spontaneous emission from the microchannel is efficiently coupled by the waveguides to the outside of the chip.
