Integration of optical pumped dye laser on organic microflowcytometry chip
Integration techniques of tunable film dye laser on a plastic optical application chip were studied. The developed film dye lasers were waveguided distributed feedback (DFB) lasers, and they can cover the wavelength from 400 to 1100 nm. We fabricated microflowcytometry chip integrated with DFB film lasers as a first example. Partly film-coating technique and film lithography fabrication with an excimer laser were tried and combined each other. The film DFB dye laser was found as an useful technique for multi-color laser integration, and they showed comparable performance our traditional spin-coated film dye lasers.
