Paper Abstract

We present an optical microsystem aimed to be integrated into a nanomechanical biosensor for functional genomic analysis. The operation principle is based on a sub-nanometer resolution optical measurement of a cantilever deflection caused by a surface stress when the target nucleic acid sample hybridises to the nucleic acid probe on the active side of the cantilever. The resulting deflection, of the order of nanometers, is measured by an optical system, in which a laser beam reflects off the back of the cantilever to a position sensitive photo-detector. We report in this paper on the design, fabrication and test of the optical head associated with an optical coupling system which enables detection of the presence of target nucleic acid on the cantilever by amplifying the deflection caused by the stress.
