Paper Abstract

Interferometry that detects phase jumps of a beam reflected under surface plasmon resonance (SPR) has been developed for bio- and chemical sensing and microscopy. In our approach the near-field of surface plasmon is used to detect monolayer reactions on a metal surface or to visualize ultra-thin films. Comprehensive theoretical model and its experimental verification are presented. A number of prospective device schemes has been developed that provide sensitivity much higher as compared to the traditional SPR sensors and equally wide dynamic range. The proposed technique has been used for a `phase jump' SPR microscopy. It can also be used for Gene Chips and High Throughput Screening analyses.
