Abstract

We demonstrate label-free molecule detection by using an integrated biosensor based on a Si 3 N 4 SiO 2 slot-waveguide microring resonator. Bovine serum albumin (BSA) and anti-BSA molecular binding events on the sensor surface are monitored through the measurement of resonant wavelength shifts with varying biomolecule concentrations. The biosensor exhibited sensitivities of 1.8 and 3.2 nm ( ng mm 2 ) for the detection of anti-BSA and BSA, respectively. The estimated detection limits are 28 and 16 pg mm 2 for anti-BSA and BSA, respectively, limited by wavelength resolution.
