Host:  Dr. Gon Namkoong


There is a growing interest in developing lab-on-a chip systems performing traditional bio/chemical laboratory measurements on samples with high portability, high precision, and high throughput in an affordable cost. Microfluidic technologies have allowed various fluidic functionalities. However, they often require larger external interfaces for signal processing and detection systems. This configuration becomes a serious limiting factor posing all the issues related with reliability, sensitivity, complexity, and cost. Intimate integration of different functional devices (such as optics, fluidics, and electronics) on a system will greatly advance the field of lab-on-a chip. In this talk, heterogeneous integration of thin film photonic devices will be presented for multi-functional integrated systems. I will present our approach to integrate different optical functions (source, detector, and waveguides) with other functional devices for fully integrated lab-on-a systems with optics, fluidics, and electronics.
