Plasmofluidic Microlenses for Label-Free Optical Sorting of Exosomes

Optofluidic-plasmonic (OPtIC) microlenses As shown in recent studies, periodic and quasi-periodic arrays of plasmonic nanoapertures can be used as micro-convex lenses focusing incident plane waves to dimensions comparable to optical wavelengths11,12,13. In addition to significantly-small...
