Integrated monolithic optical manipulation

Lab Chip. 2006 Sep;6(9):1122-4. doi: 10.1039/b605237a. Epub 2006 Jul 12.


We present a new approach to optical manipulation that integrates microfluidic channels directly onto semiconductor laser material creating a compact integrated optical trap that requires no alignment and is wholly portable.
