We provide a review on the applications of whispering gallery mode resonators in sensing, and biosensing in particular. We highlight the most recent developments in this area, which were presented at the 560. WE Heraeus Seminar “Taking Detection to the Limit – Biosensing with Optical Microcavities”.
