Development of new instruments for optofluidic based on fiber optics technology
We plan to develop new instruments for optofluidic applications. Development will based on fiber optics technology. Our group Department of Glass runs technological laboratories dedicated to design and develop various fiber-like optical microstructures as micro capillaries, hollow core fibers, microstructured fibers, nanostructured fibers made of soft glass and polymers.
Within the project we plan to develop optical tweezers in a form single mode optical fiber with various diffractive-refractive microstructure mounted at the end of the fiber. We also plan to develop a suspended core microstructured fiber with side holes to access channels near the core for optofluidic.
