Paper Abstract

The sensitivity of photonic bandgap (PBG) structures to the environment makes them suitable for sensing applications. In this study, we describe how 1-D and 2-D PBG devices can be used for sensing biological matter, from small DNA segments to larger proteins. Our work focuses on using the tunability of silicon PBGs upon binding of the desired target on the internal surface of the air holes. Modeling of the optical response is performed to identify the material nanostructure and device configuration that lead to optimum performance (e.g., sensitivity).
