Paper Abstract

Multiple surface plasmon resonances are experimentally observed for p-polarized as well as s-polarized incident light at the planar interface of a metal and a chiral sculptured thin film. These experimental results confirm that four surface plasmon resonances can be supported at the interface of metal-chiral sculptured thin film. Multiple surface plasmon resonances may allow for multiple simultaneous measurements by devices that utilize surface plasmon resonance for detection.
