Cantilever-based sensor with integrated optical read-out using single mode waveguides

Tenje, Maria LU ; Zauner, D.A.; Calleja, M.; Hübner, J. and Boisen, Anja (2007) 11th International Conference on Miniaturised Systems for Chemistry and Life Sciences (µTAS 2007) p.497-499
Abstract
This work presents the design, fabrication and mechanical characterisation of an integrated optical read-out scheme for cantilever-based biosensors. A cantilever can be used as a biosensor by monitoring its bending caused by the surface stress generated due to chemical reactions occurring on its surface. Here, we present a novel integrated optical read-out scheme based on single-mode waveguides that enables the fabrication of a compact system. The complete system is fabricated in the polymer SU-8. This manuscript shows the principle of operation and the design well as the fabrication of the system and characterisation of the read-out method.
