      Saunders, J.; Dreher, Marian; Crudden, M. Cathleen; Du, J.; Loock, Hans-Peter; Xu, D.X; Densmore, A.; Ma, R.; Janz, S.; Vachon, M.; Lapointe, J.; Delâge, A.; Schmid, J.; Cheben, P. (2016-03-17)
      Micro-photonic SOI Mach-Zehnder interferometers were coated with solid-phase micro-extraction materials derived from polydimethylsiloxane to enable sensing of volatile organic compounds of the BTEX class in air. A different ...
    • A Fabry-Perot Refractometer for Chemical Vapor Sensing by Solid-Phase Microextraction 

      St-Gelais, R.; Mackey, G.; Saunders, J.; Zhou, J.; Leblanc-Hotte, A.; Poulin, A.; Barnes, Jack A.; Loock, Hans-Peter; Brown, Robert Stanley; Peter, Yves-Alain (2016-03-14)
      The contour lithography method [1] is used to improve the fabrication yield of previously demonstrated [2] microfluidic Fabry-Perot (FP) refractive index (RI) sensors. The sensors are then coated with polydimethylsiloxane ...
