Abstract
In this work, a trilayer graphene is used as a thin non dielectric spacer with a high index of refraction, between Au film and Au NPs. Encouraged by the sharpness of the localized surface plasmon resonance LSPR induced by this system, we performed sensitivity measurements to refractive index change in the surrounding medium of the sensor. The presence of graphene led to both higher sensitivity and sharper full width at half maximum FWHM and thus higher figure of merit FOM (2.8) compared to the system without graphene (2.1).
