Photonic Biochips

(We can't show ours due to NDA requirements-- this is a cool one from Brown University that uses plasmonics.)

We've just started a collaboration with a prominent biotech company in California on spectroscopic-detection biochips using photonic waveguides. Our part of the effort is to explore the design space and come up with new topologies to maximize signal-to-noise ratio and measurement stability. This is an excellent application for POEMS as well as being an exciting new area for us.
