Abstract
Functionality of biosensor arrays based on SPR imaging is mainly defined by quality of patterned SAM, which is used for sensing of biological substances of interest. The monolayers are commonly not uniform in the micrometer scale. In the current work we describe experimental setups for PM-IRRAS mapping and SPR imaging of self assembly monolayer (SAM) formed by octadecyl phosphonic acid (CH3(CH2)17PO(OH)2) on a patterned Au/Al2O3 surface. By combining highly resolved surface plasmon resonance (SPR) images of the surface with the corresponding PM-IRRAS maps we achieved enhancement of the resolution. In this work we show, that changes of molecular structure in the thin films also induce changes in the SPR signal. Contrary, changes in SPR have their origin in molecular structure within the film.
