Optical Biosensors (BB)

Optical biosensorsOptical tools provide highly sensitive and specific means of detecting and quantifying the presence of biological materials as well as characterizing their properties. This group emphasizes the development and application of optical technologies for the targeted detection of trace biological compounds for molecularly-oriented medical diagnostics as well as for biological threat and contamination alerting. Integration of optical tools with micro-electro mechanical devices, microfluidics, and other lab-on-a-chip technologies, as well as the application of emerging technologies such as plasmonics and surface enhanced Raman scattering for biological assays are also important areas of focus.

Participate in Frontiers in Optics in San Jose, California, this October! The advanced registration deadline for this year's meeting is 21 September 2015.

Each month, the Optical Biosensors executive committee will highlight five Optical Biosensing papers published in the latest issues of the OSA journals. Initially the highlighted papers will be shared via the TG listserv, and over time they will be shared over social media as well.

If you are not receiving your highlights via email, you may need to update your technical group selections. You may do so by logging in to the My Account section of osa.org or by contacting the OSA Customer Service Department.
