Novel applications of all-optically controlled micro-fluidic lab-on-a-chip
The goal of this project is to develop optical tools for parallel
manipulation of objects in microfluidic devices. Optical trapping of objects will be performed with
multiple-beam optical manipulators using spatial light modulators. In addition
to the optical control via a microscope, we also aim to integrate planar
micro-lens systems in a microfluidic system.
Duration: 36 months starting 1 January 2004
Description of collaboration
This collaborative project is funded by the
Science Foundation under the
EUROCORES-SONS program. The EUROCORES scheme is an innovative instrument to stimulate collaboration
between research projects based in Europe.The principle behind the scheme is
to provide a framework for national research funding organisations to fund
collaborative research needs of the European scientific community in and
across all scientific areas.
