Paper Abstract

In this paper we present a novel concept of using photonic band gap fibers for capillary electrophoresis (CE) in a configuration where both the analyzed solution and the light are fed through the hollow core of the fiber. The tested fiber was an HC19-1550-01 with 20 μm core size, manufactured by Blaze Photonics and rated for 1550 nm wavelength. Results of initial experiments in reflectometric and electrophoretic configurations are presented, opening up the possibility of developing a fiber-optic sensor based on CE for remote detection of targeted compounds. Such a sensor can be expected to have a wide temperature range of operation to excellent thermal stability of hollow-core PBG fibers.
