Paper Abstract

We have described an approach for miniaturizing spectroscopic devices by using the advantages presented by elastomeric based microfluidics and semiconductor detectors/emitters. Elastomers allow for both absorption and fluorescent spectroscopy in the visible range to be conducted on small volumes of solution and allow for easy integration with existing detectors such as CMOS imagers, CCD imagers, and silicon photodiodes. Results of some basic experiments are presented to demonstrate the effectiveness of the system. In addition, several ideas for emission sources are also discussed with their relevance yet to be determined.
