Bringing one-dimensional photonic crystals to a new light: an electrophotonic platform for chemical mass transport visualisation and cell monitoring

Author affiliations

Abstract

Photonic sensor technologies represent an important milestone in monitoring complex physical, chemical and biological systems. We present an integrated chemo- and bio-photonic sensing scheme drawing on the integration of one-dimensional (1D) stimuli-responsive photonic crystals (PCs) with an electrophotonic visualisation platform. We demonstrate various modi operandi, including the real-time mapping of spatial concentration distribution of a chemical analyte and the in situ monitoring of adhesive cell cultures, enabled by the modular combination of stimuli-responsive 1D PCs with various light emitters and detectors.
