Paper Abstract

Surface plasmon resonance (SPR) has been used for some time in chemical and biological sensors. Some of the schemes for exciting surface plasmons include prisms and gratings. Grating-based optical SPR sensors have been demonstrated, which use light intensity variations at resonance or wavelength interrogation. Recently, a gold grating made from a commercial recordable compact disk was used for excitation of surface plasmons and SPR imaging. In this paper, we present a new grating configuration that combines the benefits of multi-angle interrogation with interferometric measurement techniques. This gives array sensing capability over a wide refractive index range. The set-up is based on the gold grating of commercially available recordable compact disks, which are mass produced by injection-moulding, resulting in low cost and disposable grating substrates. The potential of using this system for large sample number analysis is demonstrated.
