Abstract

We present spectral analyses of an optical fiber waveguide containing a DNA-based solution as the optical core material, as well as separately derived optical dispersion curves for several candidate solutions. Using an Abbe refractometer and a supercontinuum light source, the visible refractive indexes of DNA-toluene, DNA-CTMA-butanol, DNA-CTMAethanol, and DNA-CTMA-HFIP solutions are measured at several concentrations and several wavelengths. The optimal solutions for light guiding are injected into hollow optical fiber waveguides, and the transmission spectra are measured by optical spectrum analyzer.
