Author Affiliations +
A guided-wave surface plasmon resonance based sensor using graphene layer for detect the biomolecules has been analyzed. The use of waveguide layer between the gold film and graphene significantly improves the penetration depth and increases the sensitivity, then graphene layer is used to enhance the adsorption of the biomolecules. The thickness and materials of waveguide layer along with the number of graphene layer have been optimized to achieve the best performance of the sensor in terms of sensitivity. The highest sensitivity with 228.8°/RIU is obtained for visible wavelength with optimized thickness of gold and waveguide layer as 45nm and 10nm respectively while the materials of waveguide layer is chosen as zinc oxide and the optimum number of graphene layers is 2.We believe that this sensor could find potential applications in biological detection.
