Paper Abstract

Plasmonic nano structures fabricated using inexpensive and abundant aluminum metal shows intense narrow reflection peaks with strong response to the external stimuli, provides a simple yet powerful detection mechanism that is well suited for the development of low cost and low power sensors, such as colorimetric sensors, which transduces external stimuli or environmental changes in to visible colour changes. Such low cost and disposable sensors have huge demands in the point-of-care and home health care diagnostic applications. We present the design of a colorimetric sensing platform based on reflection mode plasmonic colour filters on both silicon and glass substrate, which demonstrate a sharp colour change for varying ambient refractive index. The sensor is essentially a plasmonic metamaterial in which the aluminum square plate hovering on a PMMA nano pillar in the background of a perforated aluminum reflector forms the unit cell which is arranged periodically in a 2D square lattice. The meta-surface has two distinct absorption peaks in the visible region leaving a strong reflection band, which strongly responds to the ambient refractive index change, provides a means for the realization of low cost colorimetric sensing platform.
