Paper Abstract

This paper describes the design and fabrication of an integrated optical glucose sensing system using the combination of the oxygen sensitive dye tris(2,2’-bipyridyl) dichlororuthenium(II) hexahydrate and glucose oxidase. Layer-by-layer self-assembly is used to immobilize the dye/enzyme system onto the surface of the waveguides. Changes in the enzyme/dye system as it interacts with the surrounding environment are monitored using end-face interaction with light injected into waveguides. The waveguides are thermally-defined monolithic polydimethlysiloxane (PDMS) waveguide system, fabricated on a PDMS substrate. The method of waveguide fabrication is a radical departure from conventional microscale waveguide systems, and offers unique opportunities for integration of this sensor into existing microfluidic systems.
