Biochemical sensing by nanofluidic crystal in a confined space

This paper introduces a novel nanofluidic crystal scheme by packing nanoparticles inside a well-designed confined space to improve the device-to-device readout consistency. The readout from different chips (n = 16) varied within 8.4% under the same conditions, which guaranteed a self-calibration-free biochemical sensing.

Tubular optical microcavities of indefinite medium for sensitive liquid refractometers

Based on Mie scattering theory, we propose a tubular microcavity made by anisotropic metamaterials with hyperbolic dispersion called indefinite media (IM). Such a microcavity provides both a high sensitivity S and a high Q factor, which could be useful for liquid refractometers.
