Multifunctional nanowire evanescent optical sensors

Multifunctional Nanowire Evanescent Optical Sensors

  • Optical sensor

    • Use nanowire to define the solution type and detect the solution concentration.

  • Goal

    • Reusable

    • Small

    • Multifunctional

Nanowire works as a sensor

Work function

Work Function

  • Nanowire

    • Made by single crystal SnO2

      • High refractive indices (n>2)

      • High aspect ratios (>103) to allow longer device

      • Chemical and mechanical properties to withstand harsh cleaning conditions

    • Molecule of the solution influence the evanescent field

      • Emit photons from one side of the nanowire and collect the output from the other side

      • calculate the absorbance to gain the concentration and type of the solution

Absorbance

Absorbance


Concentration i

Concentration (I)

  • EITC is the dye of the absorption measure.

  • Absorbance varies with the concentration of the solution and the wavelength

  • Peak absorbance is a linear function of concentration of EITC

Absorbance increases with concentration of EITC

Absorbance for different concentration

Linear!!

3 mM solution of EITC pass through a single sensing channel

Peak absorbance v.s concentration


Concentration ii

Concentration (II)

  • Different nanowire size

    • Thinner nanowire (d<150nm) has a decreased absorbance in longer wavelength

      • Photons emitted near the ribbon surface are recaptured

    • Thicker nanowire (d>200nm) has a larger linewidth

      • Penetration depth of evanescent field is a function of wavelength

A decreased absorbance

Larger linewidth


Nanocube and cladding type

Nanocube and Cladding Type

  • Work function

    • Nanocube is absorbed to the waveguide surface

    • Nanocube scatter 5-10 % waveguide light

    • Complete attenuation occurred when 10-15 nanoparticle

    • Scattering is stronger if the evanescent has a larger refraction index

The inverse dependence of intensity of the index of refraction is cased by the increase in waveguide loss as the cladding index increase

Metallic containment resue

Metallic Containment (Resue)

  • Reuse can be achieved

    • Remove metal nanostructures and regain the original waveguiding properties

      • Use solution of aqua(1:1 HNO3/HCl:H2O)

Scattering images of a metal-decorated waveguide upon introduction of a 1:1 HCl/HNO3:H2O solution. The time elapsed is 30 sec.


Conclusion

Conclusion

  • Nanowire is used to make a optical sensor

  • Concentration and type of the solution can be easily determined with this new setup

  • Reuse of this optical sensor can be achieved by removing the metallic containment with aqua.
