Paper Abstract

We demonstrate fabrication of microfluidic chips integrated with different functional elements such as optical filters and optical waveguide for mechanism study of gliding movement of Phormidium to a seedling root using a femtosecond (fs) laser. Fs laser direct writing followed by annealing and successive wet etching in dilute hydrofluoric (HF) acid solution resulted in formation of three dimensional (3D) hollow microstructures embedded in a photostructurable glass. The embedded microfludic structures enabled us to easily and efficiently observe Phormidium gliding to the seedling root, which accelerates growth of the seedling. In addition, fabrication of optical filter and optical waveguide integrated with the microfluidic structures in the microchip clarified the mechanism of the gliding movement. Such microchips, referred to as a nano-aquarium, realize the efficient and highly functional observation and analysis of the gliding movement of Phormidium.
