New Findings from Korea Institute of Science and Technology in Silicon Provides New Insights (An integrated Mach-Zehnder interferometric biosensor with a silicon oxynitride waveguide by plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Biotech Week -- Data detailed on Silicon have been presented. According to news reporting from Seoul, South Korea, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "We report the design and fabrication of an integrated Mach-Zehnder interferometric (MZI) biochip based on Silicon oxynitride layers deposited with a plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) process."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from the Korea Institute of Science and Technology, "A rib waveguide for an integrated MZI sensor has been designed to have a high surface sensitivity and a single-mode behavior by using an effective index method. The integrated MZI chip operating at 637 nm is fabricated via conventional photolithography and reactive ion etching."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "As a biosensor application, the real-time and label-free detection of the covalent immobilization and hybridization of DNA strands is performed and verified with this device."
