Microfluidic Optical Devices
Microfluidic optical devices (MOD) are the emerging technology that combines today’s microfluidics technology with the optics. However, MOD can be classified as the integration of these two technologies rather than combination of them. This integration provides a new approach for using microfluidics for control and manipulation of samples and optics for sensing. In this entry we propose a comprehensive review of emerging applications for microfluidic optical devices.
