Paper Abstract

An important consideration in the analysis of optical waveguide sensors (such as the fiberoptic fluorescent immunosensor) is the amount of total emitted fluorescence from the surface-bound proteins which is trapped and guided by the waveguiding structure of the sensor. In this paper we use a new Finite-Difference Time-Domain (FDTD) numerical technique to analyze the percentage of total fluorescence from surface dipoles which is coupled into the guided mode via the mode's evanescent tail.
