Abstract

This project aims to develop a nanophotonic pixel technology in complementary metal-oxide semi-conductor (CMOS) chips to bypass the resolution limitations for direct optical imaging and enumeration of submicron sized specimens in lab-on-chip imaging applications. Lab-on-chip imaging technology is a promising point-of-care technology, where the specimen is placed directly on a CMOS chip for imaging without using labels or chemicals and with no intervening optical components. The technology arising from the research will ultimately allow new devices to be developed, expanding the uses for lab-on-chip and potentially changing the way in which front-line medicine is practiced.
