Resolution and sensitivity in surface plasmon microscopy and sensing

Abstract

The use of surface plasmons on planar surfaces for the characterisation of those surfaces is analysed. In particular, analytic expressions are derived for the sensitivity of such characterisation to the variation of bulk refractive indices, and to the addition of thin dielectric layers on the plasmon supporting surface. Comparison between surface plasmon… (More)
