Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

We demonstrate a gradient-index (GRIN) optofluidic waveguide using polydimethylsiloxane cured with a radial variation of temperature. The waveguide wraps the microfluidic channel and the GRIN profile localizes the light around it, making the device suitable for evanescent sensing applications. The fabricated waveguide shows good light confinement, with a propagation loss of 1.47 dB/cm at a wavelength of 632.8 nm.
