The timing of an innovation is of greater important than its substance. Although the advance of knowledge depends on innovations, the given field must need and be ready to receive the innovation, otherwise it will generally be confined to obscurity. The problem that will mainly concern us here is the detection of very small amounts of optical material and its solution involving the perturbation of surface plasmon coupling resonances. We shall explain and examine some applications of the technique but also take a quick glance back into the history of the resonance, which is rather earlier than is often credited.
