The inverse problem of capillary filling, as defined in this work, consists in determining the capillary radius profile from experimental data of the meniscus position l as a function of time t. This problem is central in diverse applications, such as the characterization of nanopore arrays or the design of passive transport in microfluidics; it is(More)
An optofluidic method that accurately identifies the internal geometry of nanochannel arrays is presented. It is based on the dynamics of capillary-driven fluid imbibition, which is followed by laser interferometry. Conical nanochannel arrays in anodized alumina are investigated, which present an asymmetry of the filling times measured from different sides(More)
An experimental study on the capillary filling of nanoporous silicon with different fluids is presented. Thin nanoporous membranes were obtained by electrochemical anodization, and the filling dynamics was measured by laser interferometry, taking advantage of the optical properties of the system, related with the small pore radius in comparison to light(More)

We study the electrical characteristics of macroporous silicon/transparent conductor oxide junctions obtained by the deposition of fluorine doped-SnO2 onto macroporous silicon thin films using the spray pyrolysis technique. Macroporous silicon was prepared by the electrochemical anodization of a silicon wafer to produce pore sizes ranging between 0.9 to 1.2(More)
This paper presents an optical method for real-time monitoring of protein adsorption using porous silicon self-supported microcavities as a label-free detection platform. The study combines an experimental approach with a physical model for the adsorption process. The proposed model agrees well with experimental observations, and provides information about(More)
