Paper Abstract

Photonic crystals are nanofabricated structures that enhance light as it is passed through the constructed design. These structures are normally fabricated out of silicon but have shown to be an improvement if fabricated from a more cost effective material. Photonic crystals have uses within biosensing as they may be used to analyze DNA and other analytes. Microfluidic channels are used to transport different analytes and other samples from one end to another. Microfluidics are used in biosensing as a means of transport and are typically fabricated from biocompatible polymers. Integrated together, the photonic crystals and microfluidic channels would be able to achieve better sensing capabilities and cost effective methods for large scale production. Results will be shown from the co-molding.
