Over the past decade, key technologies like biology, microfluidics and photonics have begun to merge with each other. The result was visible in the advent of biophotonics and optofluidics. Biophotonics has become an established technology creating new ways and ideas of understanding the principles of for example cellular behavior. This merger has helped to open new doors to fundamental research and to rethink the way “biology” has functioned before. Similar breakthroughs have been reported recently on the newly established merger between photonics and fluidics – optofluidics which brought again new ideas to life.

I am interested in the merger of technologies to show the way of integrating biology, fluidics and optics. I am convinced, that new ideas which result into devices and eventually products are only possible with the combination of appropriate cross discipline technologies.
