More specifically the effective refractive index (RI) of cells is determined. The microfluidic system serves as a tool for single living cell manipulation, while the micro-optical system serves as a sensor to measure the effective RI of a single living cell in real time. By using RI as an indicator, any slight changes inside the cells can be detected. Therefore the biophotonic chip has a series of potential applications in many disease diagnostic devices in the future.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10356/2927||Rights:||Nanyang Technological University||Fulltext Permission:||restricted||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
