Abstract

We present a novel two-dimensional (2D) liquid-core waveguiding scheme that combines two different types of antiresonance reflection optical waveguides (ARROWs) to achieve ease of fabrication and richer optofluidic functionalities. We established the conditions for the optimal integration of the two ARROW schemes theoretically and validated them with 2D numerical mode analysis. The proposed scheme also provides a convenient means to install supporting solid-core waveguides without additional burden in fabrication.
