Paper Abstract

We present a review on recent advancements in rolled-up optical components created using strain engineering. A look at optical and optofluidic resonators as well as the hyperlens and an optical fiber metamaterial device is given. These individual ultra-compact components allow researchers to develop large arrays of a future highly-integrated biological sensing device known as a lab-in-a-tube. These lab-in-a-tube devices would allow for a very large parallel but individual analysis of thousands of cells, molecules and bacteria on a single chip.
