Abstract

The global need for rapid, sensitive, and noninvasive detection of proteins, antibodies, and pathogens in biological samples required therapeutic prognosis and diagnosis, and led to big challenges. Integration of nanotechnology with biophotonics may enable breakthroughs in sensing applications and overcome these challenges. Using photonic crystal (PC) nanostructures with their unique properties, such as controlling light in very small dimensions, slowing down the light, and consequent enhancement of light–matter interactions, and possibility of integrating with microfluidic ...
