Paper Abstract

In this work, surface plasmon resonance (SPR) based optical fiber sensors are proposed by using a transparent conductive coating, Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) in our case, as the SPR supporting layer. The utilization of these ITO coatings instead of using a thin film of gold or silver shifts the plasmon resonance band to the infra-red region and allows the tunability of the SPR wavelength by adjusting the film fabrication parameters. The spectral response of these novel devices is characterized, achieving a sensitivity of 0.00025 refractive index units per nanometer, which opens the door for a wide range of applications.
