Abstract:In further work, a theory is outlined for predicting photonic crystal label-free imaging resolution based on resonance spectral characteristics. Devices are characterized by patterning a resolution standard onto the sensor using photolithography, and excellent design control over label-free imaging resolution is demonstrated. The spectral response of a photonic crystal is optimized for improved label-free imaging of immobilized DNA microarray capture spots. Applications to protein microarrays and cell-based assays are also demonstrated.
