Abstract: Microfluidic device with integrated flow rate sensor is demonstrated. Two glass capillaries and a short length of high light-absorption, Co 2+-doped fiber were stacked inside another capillary and drawn into a taper, containing two ∼40μm diameter microchannels. An FBG was inscribed in the Co2+-doped fiber. 1480 nm light was used to heat the Co 2+-doped fiber and its temperature was measured using an FBG-interrogator operating around 1550nm. The flow rate of the liquid inside in the microchannel can be determined by the temperature and cooling rate of the microchannel. Sensitivity of 0.304nm/(μL/s) and minimum detectable flow rate ∼16nL/s were demonstrated.
