Abstract
In this work we review recent results of our work on optofluidics. We show that single mode optofluidic waveguides with low loss can be realized using antiresonant reflecting optical confinement (ARROW). These waveguides can be fabricated using full standard silicon technology or hybrid silicon-polymer processes. ARROW waveguides have been used in order to realize complex optofluidic devices like Mach-Zehnder interferometers and ring resonators. The advantage of using optofluidic waveguide results in very compact devices with a total length of 2.5 mm and a required liquid volume less then 0.16nl.
