Paper Abstract

In this letter, surface plasmon resonance sensors based on grapefruit-type photonic crystal fiber (PCF)with different silver nano-filling structure have been analyzed and compared though the finite element method (FEM). The regularity of the resonant wavelength changing with refractive index of the sample has been numerically simulated. The surface plasmon resonance (SPR) sensing properties have been numerically simulated in both areas of resonant wavelength and intensity detection. Numerical results show that excellent sensor resolution of 4.17×10-5RIU can be achieved as the radius of the filling silver nanowires is 150 nm by spectrum detection method. Comprehensive comparison indicates that the 150 nm silver wire filling structure is suitable for spectrum detection and 30 nm silver film coating structure is suitable for the amplitude detection.
