We present an optical microsystem aimed to be integrated into a nanomechanical biosensor for functional genomic analysis. The operation principle is based on a nanometre resolution optical measurement of a cantilever deflection caused by a surface stress when the target nucleic acid molecule hybridises to the nucleic acid probe already immobilized on the active side of the cantilever. The resulting deflection, of the order of some nanometres, is measured by the means of an optical system, in which a laser beam reflected off the back of the cantilever is guided to a position sensitive photo-detector. We report in this paper on the design, fabrication and test of the optical head, a key element of the optical coupling system, which enables detection of the presence of target nucleic acid on the cantilever by amplifying the measured laser beam displacement.

OVERVIEW OF THE SYSTEM

20 cantilever array to be tested by an optical non invasive method

  • Cantilever deflection very small

  • Position detector sensibility : 0.1mm

14° FWHM laser source divergence

VCSEL collimation is mandatory

Development of an optical coupling element

Measurement Beam Amplification

VCSEL Collimation

Most suited microlenses design (Zemax software)

Lenses received, specified and mounted :

A coupling element has been developed which ensures the amplification of the cantilever deflection angle, while preventing neighboring beams to overlap each other.

The optical coupler is interlocked with the VCSEL laser sources head and the adjustment of the light spot on the PSD is made by tilting the micofluidic head.

  • Z positioning : 263,5 +/- 1.5 µm

  • X & Y positioning tolerance : relative variation (of RMS spot radius) ε < 3% for a ±10µm positioning error

Photo for 10º incidence angle

The optical coupler increases the beam path, thereby amplifies the laser beam shift on the photodetector surface from few nanometers to several micrometers in order to make it detectable.

TESTS on multimode VCSEL :

AlOx=9.5µm, 1/e2 = 18º

gap(VCSEL-lens) = 220µm instead of 263µm

The minimum track between the cantilever and the detector needed to detect the smallest cantilever deflection is around 15cm(1).

Measurement of absorption and reflection coefficients :

Data obtained with an incident angle of 10º (total track = 303mm)

TESTS on singlemode VCSEL:

AlOx=3.5µm, 1/e2 = 18°

WITHOUT LENS

WITH LENS

gap(VCSEL-lens) = 250µm instead of 263µm

  • Results :

  • Divergence reduction by a factor 8.5 despite a very constraining vertical positioning

  • Fabrication of 2 array support types
