Marangoni Optofluidic Tweezers (MOT)
There is currently a great deal of interest in using small droplets as containers for chemical reactions. Optical methods for droplet manipulation are attractive because they offer control without an on chip structure; however forces from optical tweezers tend to be in the pN range. Wayne State University researchers have developed a new m...

Integrated Optical Polarizer for Silicon-on-Insulator Waveguides
Integrated optics based on silicon-on-insulator platforms are developing extremely fast due to technological compatibility with complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) fabrication process widely accepted in microelectronics.  Wayne State researchers have developed a technology which generates an integrated optical polarizer for high index co...
