Hollow-core photonic bandgap fiber (HC-PBGF)–based evanescent wave biosensors are demonstrated and analyzed theoretically and experimentally. With 95% of the guided light power residing in the samples, the measured absorbance for a 30-cm-long fiber filled with a 0.2 μM Alexa Fluor 700–labeled DNA Oligo solution is 1.06. This is in good agreement with the theoretical prediction, which is evaluated by using the refractive index scaling law. The HC-PBGFs thus offer both efficiency and simplicity for the detection of biomolecules in ultra-small sample volumes.
