Abstract
This paper reports the feasibility of optical coherence tomography (OCT) technology for inspection of bonding quality of microfluidic devices in manufacturing environments. A compact optical-fiber-based OCT is developed and its measurement performance is characterized. A series of microfluidic devices respectively bonded by adhesive tape, thermal method, and oxygen plasma, are inspected. The defects of geometry deformation and sealing completeness are emphasized during measurements. Based on the inspection results, some discoveries related to the production of microfluidic devices are discussed.
