We demonstrate the monolithic integration of waveguides and microfluidic channels using same material, PDMS (polydimethylsiloxane). We also developed two different schemes of integration. Both of them show precise alignment and robust structure. These techniques hold great promise of expanding functionality of micro-total analysis systems with photonic integrated circuits.
