Surface Plasmon Resonance Biosensor Incorporated in a Michelson Interferometer WithEnhanced Sensitivity

A novel double-pass phase-sensitive surface plasmon resonance (SPR) biosensor based on a Michelson interferometer with differential phase interrogation is presented. The new setup provides an intrinsic resolution enhancement of up to two times in terms of achievable detection sensitivity due to an amplification effect in the SPR phase change when we place… (More)
