Paper Abstract

In this work we present experimental results that confirm the influence of an absorptive surrounding medium in the behavior of conventional SPR fiber sensors. It can be observed that when a plasmon resonance coincides with a wavelength absorbed by the medium, the depth of the dip is affected, as predicted in the simulations. The results are important from the basic point of view, since the influence of absorptive medium in plasma waves has not been sufficiently studied up to date and they can also be used as the basis for a new method of SPR-based refractometry selective to specific analytes without the need of the addition of recognizing elements to the transducer.
