Properties of an optical multipass surface plasmon resonance technique Academic Article uri icon


  • A fiber optic four-pass surface plasmon resonance technique with an approach to increase the number of passes to any arbitrary number is described. Within multipass regime, reflections off the gold sample surface that reduce the reflectivity to less than 0.1% are achieved by using a fiber optic collimator, a reflector, and a corner cube prism. In this case, the optical beam emits from and returns to the collimator. This technique holds the potential for significantly increasing the detection sensitivity of surface plasmon resonance device.
