We report Gold/Silica biochips for low cost biosensor devices. Firstly, the study of biochemical interactions on silica by means of Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR) is presented. Secondly, Gold/Silica biochips are employed to reduce the strong quenching that occurs when a fluorophore is close to the gold surface. Furthermore, the control of the Silicalike(More)
The elasticity of human oocytes has been estimated by means of a very simple SU-8 microsystem. The device consists of a double SU-8 layer spin coated on a silicon wafer. A micro-beam is patterned by standard photolithography. The silicon wafer is back etched using deep reactive ion etching (DRIE) in order to release the micro-beam. Because the SU-8 resin(More)
A new fiberized fluorescence imaging probe is presented. This device can potentially be used for a wide range of biological or medical applications. By exploiting the chromatic aberrations of gradient index lenses, the excitation blue or near-UV excitation light is focused on the sample surface, while the red fluorescence signal is efficiently launched back(More)
A 1540-nm external-cavity laser diode with an intracavity electro-optic wavelength tuner is demonstrated. Coarse- and fine-wavelength tuning is achieved with a single lithium niobate wavelength tuner. One section of the crystal is used as a tunable-wavelength filter to tune the wavelength by mode hopping. The other operates as a phase modulator to change(More)
During Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) attempts, oocytes reaching metaphase II are microinjected. A morphological examination under a microscope is the usual method for determining oocyte maturity. The level of oocyte maturity is based on the meiotic status (Germinal Vesicle, metaphase I and metaphase II) of the oocytes with respect to their(More)
