Abstract:Application of an integrated optics (IO) microcavity (MC) for evanescent excitation of two-photon excited fluorescence (TPF) is demonstrated. The MC provides a high local intensity, which is required for the TPF, because of resonant enhancement of the intracavity power and a strong two-dimensional confinement of the guided mode. Numerical estimations show a large increase, by more than a factor of 104 of the TPF intensity at the MC compared to a conventional straight waveguide. This will lead to a significant improvement of the detection limits of UV-absorbing chromophores (down to 10−8 M) when using the MC as a biosensor. Feasibility of TPF excitation using an IO MC is confirmed experimentally for the first time.
