    Resonant techniques are of wide interest to detect variation of effective refractive index at a chip surface. Both Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR) and dielectric resonant waveguide (RWGs) can be exploited. Through their design, RWGs allow more flexibility (size of the biomolecule to detect, detection angle…). Using specially designed RWG “Peak-tracking chip”, we propose to use spatial information from a simple monochromatic picture as a new label-free bioarray technique. We discuss robustness, sensitivity, multiplex detection, fluidic integration of the technique and illustrate it through bulk refractive index sensing as well as specific recognition of DNA fragment from gyrase A.
