This paper reports a golden microtrap chip for anesthetic depth monitoring. The chip selectively captures the propofol (2,6-diisopropylphenol) compound, which is a widely used substance for anesthesia, by filtering out the other species found in human breath. The fabricated silicon-glass chip is 12 mm on each side and consists of an array of high aspect ratio parabolic reflectors inside its 7 mm × 7 mm × 0.24 mm cavity. The interior surfaces of the chip are coated with an electroplated gold… CONTINUE READING
