Nanophotonic Sensor Implants With 3D Hybrid Periodic-Amorphous Photonic Crystals For Wide-Angle Monitoring Of Long-Term In-Vivo Intraocular Pressure

In this work, we have developed a nanophotonic-based optomechnical device and reported the smallest intraocular pressure (IOP) implant (Dia: 500 um, Thick: 200 um) that can be placed in any area under the cornea into the anterior chamber without touching the endothelium. The sensor is made of only flexible biocompatible silicone/polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) and structured as 3D hybrid photonic c... » read more
