Paper Abstract

The progress in the development of Si-based Surface Plasmon Resonance sensing technology is reported. This technology uses multi-layer structures with a gold film and a silicon prism in the Kretschmann-Raether geometry and makes potentially possible the miniaturization and integration of the sensor device on a silicon-based microplatform. We show conditions of the simultaneous excitation for two plasmon polariton modes over both sides of the gold film using different intermediate layers, between the high-refractive index silicon prism and the gold, and examine their response in configurations of the conventional and nanoparticle-enhanced sensing. The system has been calibrated in real-time measurements of protein (Concanavalin A) adsorption.
