Abstract
A new optical sensor using local plasmon resonance is proposed. The sensor uses the principle that the extinction efficiency of a small metal particle depends on the effective refractive index of the medium surrounding the particle. We use gold colloid monolayers for the sensor, in which colloidal gold particles of 16-nm diameter are immobilized on a glass slide using functional organic coupling agent. We measured absorption spectra of the gold colloid monolayers immersed in liquid samples and coated with film samples. In the experiments for poly-(methyl methacrylate acid) films we obtained the thickness sensitivities of 0.009 absorbance/nm and 4.3 nm/nm for peak absorbance and for resonance wavelength, respectively.
