Fiber Optic Biosensor-integrated Microfluidic Chip to Detect Glucose Levels
Fiber Optic Biosensor-integrated Microfluidic Chip to Detect Glucose Levels
Insulin deficiency and hyperglycemia are two well-known culprits behind diabetes, both of which are reflected in blood glucose concentrations.� Now, researchers are working to create ultrasensitive lab-on-a-chip devices to quickly measure glucose conce...
Dense Yet Transparent Materials offer New Way to Control Light
Dense Yet Transparent Materials offer New Way to Control Light
Researchers recently made the surprising discovery that a special class of materials called �hyperuniform materials� can be both dense and transparent. This work demonstrates a new way to control light and could lead to novel materials for many light-b...
Using Light to Create Sound, Researchers Develop Innovative New Chemical Sensing Method
Using Light to Create Sound, Researchers Develop Innovative New Chemical Sensing Method
Researchers have developed a promising new fiber-optic based chemical sensing method that uses light inside a fiber to induce sound waves outside it, providing indirect information about what surrounds the fiber. By overcoming a significant limitation ...
