The Implementation of Optofluidic Microscopy on a Chip Scale and Its Potential Applications in Biology

Lap Man Lee
This thesis presents an effort to miniaturize conventional optical microscopy to a chip level using microfluidic technology. Modern compound microscopes use a set of bulk glass lenses to form magnified images from biological objects. This limits the possibility of shrinking the size of a microscope system. The invention of micro/nanofabrication technology gives hope to engineers who want to rethink the way we build optical microscopes. This advancement can fundamentally reform the way clinicians and biologists...
