Paper Abstract

We report on the thickness resolution of a localized surface plasmon microscope in the observation of lipid bilayers. We calculated plots of the effective refractive index as a function of bilayer thickness. On the basis of measured effective refractive indices, we theoretically determined the resolution to be less than 1 nm.
