Abstract

This work describes the development of optofluidic waveguides for reconfigurable photonic systems, forming one of the critical components in our development of microfluidically adaptable photonic materials. The interaction of light in liquids and solids has been studied extensively [1-3], however, this work is a new approach showing the ability to transfer light between liquid and solids optofluidic waveguides. The goal of this work is to develop new optical materials as a photonic component which can provide sub millisecond switching and compatibility with solid state optical devices while maintaining the infinite reconfigurability of liquidcore systems.
