Abstract:

Systems and Processes Engineering Corporation (SPEC) and Dr. Michael F. Becker of the University of Texas at Austin propose to develop, design and integrate a number of diverse technologies to create an innovative optical fluorescence sensor on a chip. The proposed chip sensor employs a unique thin film structure which provides both a greatly enhanced fluorescence for molecules situated near the top surface of the sensor and wavelength filtering for transmitted light. This combination provides greatly enhanced signal-to-noise. the thin film structure is suitable for incorporation with standard solid state detectors and may be integrated into microchip sensor applications.
