The aim of this work is to highlight the possibility of local non-intrusive temperature measurements at the interface between a metallic surface and a fluid by analyzing the plasmon resonance on a periodically micro-structured surface. A change in the temperature of the sample surface induces a modification of the local refractive index leading to a shift of the surface plasmon resonance frequency due to interactions between the evanescent electric field and the close environment of the surface. The metallic gratings developed in this study enable a direct excitation of a plasmonic wave, which, in turn, lead to a high sensibility of the local temperature measurement with a very compact and simple device.
Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the conference proceedings. They include the speaker's narration along with a video recording of the presentation slides and animations. Many conference presentations also include full-text papers.
