All-Fiber Optofluidic Component to Combine Light and Fluid
2014 (English)In: IEEE Photonics Technology Letters, ISSN 1041-1135, E-ISSN 1941-0174, Vol. 26, no 10, 1031-1033 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
A component is presented that combines light and fluid in an optical fiber arrangement for optofluidics. The component couples light from a standard telecom fiber (STF) to the solid-core of a microstructured fiber, and delivers fluid from a capillary to the holes of the same microstructured fiber. The light is then made to interact longitudinally with the delivered fluid in a hollow-core fiber or capillary. The component is all-spliced, hermetic and allows for fluid flow without interrupting the optical beam. Light is brought from the STF to the solid-core/fluid interface with a loss <0.1 dB.
