Abstract
The ratio (ζ) of surface tension to viscosity of liquids can be determined using hollow core photonic crystal fibres (HCPCF), and we show here techniques to determine ζ of glucose levels within fluids, of nano-litre quantities. We demonstrate an optically integrated micro-capillary viscometer, to determine the concentrations of nano-litre solutions based on properties of their flow within HC-PCF. The filling of the fibres with liquids within a given range of refractive index will induce a shift in the photonic band gap of the fibre, allowing guidance of light at wavelengths that were originally outside the bandgap of the HC-PCF.
