Paper Abstract

We present preliminary designs and experimental results for creating a microarray nanoplatform based on twodimensional photonic crystal devices in silicon. Multiple photonic crystal microcavities are coupled along the length of a single photonic crystal waveguide that undergo resonance wavelength shifts when an antibody-antibody binding event occurs in the immediate vicinity of the corresponding photonic crystal microcavity. The microarray nanoplatform enables high throughput measurements of multiple antibody-antibody interactions via a single optical waveguide transmission measurement.
