A practical application of surface plasmon resonance (SPR) for the realization of an ultrasensitive, fully-integrated, fully-packaged wireless sensor, that can operate in microwave frequencies based on the gas sensitivity of carbon nanotube (CNT) mixtures, is proposed. The sensor consists of a corrugated aluminum plate whose surface is periodically covered with a thin layer of the CNT materials. The incident TM-polarized waves on this surface excite the surface plasmon (SP) mode, thus resulting… CONTINUE READING
