Biosensor based on rugate PSi interferometer for the detection of avidin has been described. Rugate PSi fabricated by applying a computer-generated pseudo-sinusoidal current waveform has been prepared for the application as a label-free biosensor based on porous silicon interferometer. The fabrication, optical characterization, and surface derivatization of a rugate PSi has been described. The method to fabricate biotinderivatized rugate PSi has been investigated. The surface and cross sectional morphology of rugate PSi are obtained with SEM. FT-IR spectroscopy is used to characterize the oxidation and functionalization reaction of rugate PSi sample. Binding of the avidin into the biotin-derivatized rugate PSi induces a change in refractive index. A red-shift of reflectivity by 18 nm in the reflectivity spectrum is observed, when the biotin-modified rugate PSi was exposed to a flow of avidin.
