Abstract(s) :

(Anglais) new generic device suitable for the investigation of ligand-receptor interactions is presented. In particular, the research focused on optical waveguides constituted by an attenuated total internal reflection (ATR) element, transparent in the infrared and whose surfaces were activated in view of covalently binding a receptor. Silicon and germanium ATR elements were considered. The original method is based on the grafting of bifunctional spacer molecules directly at the surface of the germanium crystal, avoiding the deposition of an intermediate metal layer. The grafting of these binding molecules (under their N-hydroxysuccinimidyl ester forms) was performed either by wet chemistry or by photochemistry. The functionalized surfaces, which allow the binding of molecules bearing peripherical NH2 groups, were successfully used, e.g., for the detection of proteins (streptavidin) or of small molecules (biotin). In the latter case, the biotin was readily detected for concentrations as low as 10-12 M
