Improving the sensitivity of SPR sensors based on gratings by double-dips method (DDM).

The sensitivity of surface plasmon resonance (SPR) sensors based on gratings using angular interrogation is improved by optimizing the 1st-order diffraction dip recently but still can not exceed the prism-based systems. To improve the sensitivity of grating-based systems in another way, we realize sharp dips of the higher diffraction orders and propose… CONTINUE READING
