Optofluidic router featured in Nature Photonics

A recent article in "Lab on a Chip" describing an optofluidic optical router developed by the Gisela and Erwin Sick Chair of Micro-optics in collaboration with CSIC in Barcelona, Spain, was featured as a "Research Highlight" by Nature Photonics (On-chip router,” Nature Photonics, vol. 8, p. 85, 2014). The fully integrated router relies solely on electrically-movable liquid-liquid interfaces for switching optical signals and is based on micromachined glass and polymer materials.
