Author Affiliations +
Recent advances in technology have spawned a rapidly growing use of photonic systems for life sciences related clinical and research applications. Many of these biomedical applications are using selections of passive and active optical components that were developed for optical fiber communication systems over the past two decades. This paper describes how the unique physical characteristics and light-transmission properties of various passive optical components developed for telecommunications address some of the basic challenges of photonic applications in the life sciences.
