A method of embedding micro-optics into a microfluidic device was proposed and demonstrated. First, the usefulness of embedded right-angle prisms was demonstrated in microscope observation. Lateral-view microscopic observation of an aqueous dye flow in a 100-μm-sized microchannel was demonstrated. Then, the embedded right-angle prisms were utilized for multi-beam laser spectroscopy. Here, crossed-beam thermal lens detection of a liquid sample was applied to glucose detection.
