Paper Abstract

Silicon photonic devices, such as SOI microring resonators, have optical properties that are incredibly responsive to changes in the local dielectric environment accompanying a biological binding event at or near the ring surface. We have developed a platform in which arrays of uniquely addressable microrings are functionalized with target-specific capture agents so as to create a powerful tool for multiplexed biomolecular detection. We will discuss applications of this technology to the multiplexed detection of DNA, RNA, and proteins in clinically-relevant matrices, and will also describe the rigorous empirical determination of key sensitivity metrics.
