Abstract: Optofluidic is the technology synthesis between optics and microfluidics that enables the development of various miniaturized optical systems. The optofluidic compartments provide seamless integration with micro-total analysis (?-TAS) systems. Optofluidic technologies provide optical tunability which its solid counterparts lack. Furthermore, the creation of optofluidic technologies in planar microfluidic devices represents an importance aspect in the integration of optical functionalities into ?-TAS systems. All solid based optical systems, take for instance, those that are built by glass or semiconductor cannot be integrated into the current state-of-the-art ?-TAS systems. The physical properties or the direction of light can be altered within the optofluidic circuit utilizing optical reflectivity?s property at solid-liquid interfaces or liquid-liquid interfaces. These light manipulation technologies are able to cater for a broad range of applications.
