Abstract
In this paper the results of detecting volatile organic compounds (VOC) employing surface plasmon-based sensors are presented. The initial step in preparing the sensing elements herein requires depositing Au degree(s) on a quartz slide. The sensing elements are based on either (1) freshly deposited Au degree(s) or (2) growth of a self assembled monolayer composite film (SAM) on to a freshly deposited Au degree(s) surface. The desired SAM is either (1) acid terminated using (omega) -mercaptoundecanoic acid (MUA-COOH) or (2) Cu2+ metal ion terminated yielding (omega) - mercaptoundecanoic acid-Cu2+ (MUA-Cu2+). The experimental apparatus shown here measures the reflectivity of the Au degree(s) surface as a function of time at a given angle. The response of this surface plasmon device to various VOC's is correlated to the composition of the SAM film.
