Paper Abstract

In the development of optoelectronic devices, deoxyribonucleic acid has been a representative material which has received much recent attention as a promising research area. We constructed waveguide based on optical fiber components and polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) channel with discrete two dimensional nano-scale DNA monolayers grown by a self-assembly process and DNA complexes with cetyltrimethylammonium (DNA-CTMA) based on different kinds of solution; butanol, ethanol, and hexafluoroisopropanol. We measured the spectral profile of waveguides using a near-infrared laser source. We expect that biomaterials such as DNA-lipid complexes will have a unique application in optical devices compared with traditional fossil fuel-based polymers.
