Multiplexing of fiber optic SPR sensors
Raman Kashyap,Raman Kashyap,

Surface Plasmon resonance was discovered by in Wood 1902. Its relatively recent development as a successful technique for bio-­‐sensing has provided an impetus for lowering cost and increasing functionality, especially for the clinical environment. This paper reviews recent advances in the proposals for fiber optic based SPR sensors. A demonstration based on a simple reflective solution is introduced and discussed. The concept of implementing several in-­‐line SPR sensors is presented, and the first experimental implementation along with the potential for future development,is discussed.

Hua-Yi Hsueh Award Candidate A Promising Method for Fabricating Si Core Waveguide on Bulk Si Substrate
Hua-Yi Hsueh,Shih-Jieh Lin,Li-Jen Chen,Chun-Chung Cheng,Kuan-Yu Chen,Ching-Fuh Lin,

Cylindrical silicon optical waveguide is fabricated on bulk (100) silicon substrate by applying mold-assisted excimer laser treatment. Under proper processing condition, the Si core waveguide supports single-mode operation with propagation loss of 2.23 dB/cm. The fascinating result makes it possible to realize optical system application on bulk silicon substrates.

PHAN QUOC HUNG Award Candidate High Resolution of Surface Plasma Resonance Gas Sensing Based on Polarization Scanning Ellipsometry

A novel of surface plasmon resonance (SPR) gas sensing by polarization scanning ellipsometry is proposed. The simulation and experiment were performed to investigate the sensitivity of the effective ellipsometric parameters and refractive index of different gases. The proposed approach can achieve a high order resolution of 2x10e-8 RIU

Chen Te-Chang Award Candidate Tunable Optical Resonators by Manipulating Polystyrene Microspheres through Dielectrophoretic Force at Inhomogeneous Structures
Liao Tse-Jen,Chen Te-Chang,

A microchip device for manipulating microsphere resonators using dielectrophretic force is demonstrated. Via adjusting the applied voltage across an inhomogeneous structure (rib waveguide), the coupling distance between the microsphere resonator and a single-mode rib waveguide is precisely controlled.

Kuan-Zhou Chen Award Candidate 40 Gbps Optical Interconnect over 1 km OM4 Fiber Using 850 nm Two-Mode VCSELs and CAP Modulation
Kuan-Zhou Chen,I-Cheng Lu,Chia-Chien Wei,Hsing-Yu Chen,Cheng-Hsiang Huang,Kai-Lun Chi,Jin-Wei Shi,Fan-I Lai,Dan-Hua Hsieh,Hao-Ching Kuo,Wei Lin,Shi-Wei Chiu,Jyehong Chen,

Novel two-mode 850nm VCSELs with short (λ/2) cavity, oxide-relief and Zn-diffusion apertures are demonstrated to further release speed bottleneck of single-mode VCSELs. Employing carrier-less amplitude and phase modulation, it achieves 40 Gbps over 1005 m OM4 fiber.
