Opto-microfluidics (O-MF) holds great promise in providing new lab-on-chip systems that integrate many functionalities to exploit the light interaction within the field of the nano- micro-scale of fluid manipulations. Applications to the chemical synthesis, biological analysis and sensing have already been demonstrated showing the significant potentialities of O-MF still to be investigated. Most of the challenges rely on the choice of the materials to achieve a performing, sustainable and portable as well as competitive platform with respect to bulky systems. New perspectives and recent advances of O-MF will be therefore presented with a special focus on optical sensing.
