Slow light optofluidics: a proposal

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The resonant slow light structures created along a thin-walled optical capillary by nanoscale deformation of its surface can perform comprehensive simultaneous detection and manipulation of microfluidic components. This concept is illustrated with a model of a 0.5 mm long, 5 nm high, triangular bottle resonator created at a 50 μm radius silica capillary containing floating microparticles. The developed theory shows that the microparticle positions can be determined from the bottle resonator spectrum. In addition, the microparticles can be driven and simultaneously positioned at predetermined locations by the localized electromagnetic field created by the optimized superposition of eigenstates of this resonator, thus exhibiting a multicomponent, near-field optical tweezer.
