Abstract

A novel ultra-sensitive and versatile sensor platform of micro-ring actuators is discussed. Micro-ring resonators constitute ideal micro-spots, where the target reactions are spatially confined and shows high signal density. The combination of high quality factor Q, and small geometry leads to power buildup within the microcavity, which allows the accurate detection of molocular events on the ring surface. However, the choice of material and optical design produce an arrayed sensor capable of multiplexing thousands of tests and samples per run, while building enough replicates and references to enhance the overall sensitivity and accuracy of the test.
