Abstract
Deep UV-induced modification of the refractive index of polymers is a useful technique for low cost realization of integrated optical circuits for telecommunication und sensor applications. The combination with replication techniques like injection molding and hot embossing give the capability of a monolithic integration of these waveguide structures in optical or fluidic microsystems. In addition the hybrid integration of these integrated optofluidic microsystems with organic or inorganic photodiodes will open up the possibility to development novel, cheap, disposable integrated optical sensors for environmental, chemical and biological monitoring.
