Abstract

We propose the construction of a biosensor based on photonic crystals of polyferrocenylsilane (PFS). The redox-activity of PFS, combined with the color of the photonic crystal, will allow for both optical and electrochemical readout. The photonic crystal will be directly written into a layer of polymer using twophoton lithography. We show that we are able to build structures of PFS using two-photon lithography and can perform electrochemical sensing using PFS. These are two important steps towards PFS photonic crystals for optical and electrochemical glucose sensing.
