Paper Abstract

A micro-structured fiber-based system for identification and collection of fluorescent particles is demonstrated. An optical fiber probe with longitudinal holes in the cladding is used to retrieve fluorescent particles by exerting microfluidics forces. Laser induced fluorescent (LIF) is carried out by the fiber probe and an optical setup. When a particle with a previously chosen fluorescence wavelength is identified, a vacuum pump is activated collecting the particle into a hole. Green and red fluorescent polystyrene particles were detected and selectively retrieved.
