Paper Abstract

Surface Plasmon resonance (SPR) optical fiber sensors can be used as a cost-effective and relatively simple-toimplement alternative to well established bulky prism configurations for in-situ high sensitivity biochemical and electrochemical measurements. The miniaturized size and remote operation ability offer them a multitude of opportunities for single-point sensing in hard-to-reach spaces, even possibly in vivo. Grating-assisted and polarization control are two key properties of fiber-optic SPR sensors to achieve unprecedented sensitivities and limits of detection. The biosensor configuration presented here utilizes a nano-scale metal-coated tilted fiber Bragg grating (TFBG) imprinted in a commercial single mode fiber core with no structural modifications. Such sensor provides an additional resonant mechanism of high-density narrow cladding mode spectral combs that overlap with the broader absorption of the surface Plasmon for high accuracy interrogation. In this talk, we briefly review the principle, characterization and implementation of plasmonic TFBG sensors, followed by our recent developments of the “surface” and “localized” affinity studies of the biomolecules for real life problems, the electrochemical actives of electroactive biofilms for clean energy resources, and ultra-highly sensitive gas detection.
