ABSTRACT
We propose a point-shifted D0 nanocavity formed by locally modulating four central air holes in square lattice photonic crystal for optical sensing application. Three defect modes in this nanocavity, including monopole, whispering-gallery, and dipole modes, are identified in experiments. We also apply a chemical treatment on InGaAsP surface to form a 1-octadecanethiol linking monolayer, which enables the following protein adsorption. In experiments, the wavelength shifts of lasing modes in the D0 nanocavity due to the protein adsorption are observed and agree with the simulation results. This can be a practical tool for label-free molecule detection in biomedical researches.

    The kinetics of irreversible multilayer deposition on one- and two-dimensional uniform substrates was studied. It was assumed that the distribution of sizes of parking objects, intervals in 1D and disks in 2D, have a small-size and a large-size cutoff, l and L, respectively. The general case...

    Structure of monolayers built during adsorption process is strongly related to the properties of adsorbed particles. The most important factor is their shape. For example, adsorption of elongated molecules on patterned surfaces may produce certain orientational order inside a covering layer....

    It is shown that, contrary to all previously studied systems, heating to ∼800 K in the C60–TaS2 monolayer–Ta(100) adsorption system leads to the complete removal of the deposited fullerene molecules. A model is proposed that explains the observed phenomenon by a very weak...

    A simple procedure is examined for forming a selective sensor coating using mixed self-assembling thiol monolayers functionalized by molecules of the sulfanilamide antibiotic, sulfamethoxazol (SMX). A model is proposed for the interface processes, which accounts for the complex dependence of the...
