Abstract
In this plenary talk, we will discuss optical whispering-gallery modes (WGM) resonance and its applications in nanoscale detection and molecular level sensing. The sensing principle is either an evanescent electromagnetic field interacts with target biomolecules adsorbed or covalently attached to the microsensor surface or a resonant field interacts with target molecules trapped inside a resonator, and consequently induces changes in the optical resonance spectrum. For example, a porous ring microresonator integrated in a micro electrofluidic system can function as both a filter and an optical WGM sensor. The microelectrofluidic forces augment substantially the filtration capability of the system, which separates the target molecules from solution and enriches the analyte deposition inside the porous resonator. This alters the optical properties of the resonator and shifts the optical WGM resonance frequency, leading to potential label-free ultrasensitive detection of small molecules at picomolar concentration levels and below.
