Paper Abstract

In its standard version, our BioPhotonics Workstation (BWS) can generate multiple controllable counter-propagating beams to create real-time user-programmable optical traps for stable three-dimensional control and manipulation of a plurality of particles. The combination of the platform with microstructures fabricated by two-photon polymerization (2PP) can lead to completely new methods to communicate with micro- and nano-sized objects in 3D and potentially open enormous possibilities in nano-biophotonics applications. In this work, we demonstrate that the structures can be used as microsensors on the BWS platform by functionalizing them with silica-based sol-gel materials inside which dyes can be entrapped.
