16 May 2007 Novel polarization control for high-throughput surface plasmon resonance sensors
Author Affiliations +
We study changes in the polarization of a light induced by the interaction of light with a surface plasmon. Based on the results of the study, a novel polarization control scheme for surface plasmon resonance (SPR) sensors is proposed. Theoretical model of an SPR sensor employing the new polarization control scheme is presented. The theoretical analysis suggests that the proposed polarization control scheme can significantly improve sensitivity and operating range of SPR sensors. Results of the theoretical analysis are validated experimentally using a laboratory SPR imaging sensor system with the proposed polarization control.
