We report on recent research activities of our group on several photonic biosensors. The silicon-on-
insulator (SOI) material platform and deep UV lithography is used to fabricate photonic structures for label-free detection of bio-molecular interactions and for tissue imaging [1]. For label free sensors, several approaches are being investigated: ring resonators, slotted waveguides and surface plasmon interferometry. Additionally, we investigate basic SOI photonic structures for optical coherence tomography (OCT) components for tissue imaging.
