Developments in nanotechnology, electronics, computing, algorithms, imaging, and fabrication technologies are assisting us in miniaturizing optical/photonic devices to become portable and suitable for point of care and field applications. During the last 10 years we have been working on different technologies for this purpose including full field optical coherence tomography, plasmonic sensors, and spectral/polarization control liquid crystal devices.

In this lecture I will review our miniaturized devices developed for these purposes including spectro-polarimetric imaging module based on unique liquid crystal devices demonstrated for skin cancer detection, plasmonic sensor with less than 1kg weight and small form factor demonstrated for detecting biomarkers, viruses, bacteria and other analytes, SERS sensors with ultrahigh enhancement, and more.
