Abstract

This paper discussed a sensing property of the SPR sensor to detect changes in refractive index of the dielectric medium. The resonant angle shifting was observed as the dielectrics medium was changed from air to SiO2 thin film. The effect of a free space wavelength to the excitation of SPP was investigated by employing laser sources with wavelengths transmission of 545nm and 632.8nm. In comparison with 545nm of wavelength transmission, we revealed that He-Ne laser source with wavelength of 632.8nm is suitable to produce a strong SPR signal due to its high Q-factor. To avoid misinterpretation between the destructive interference and SPR phenomenon, we proposed a simple theoretical approach using momentum conservation principle which concerning the wavevector values to validate the experimental results. By ignoring the imaginary part of the dielectric function of gold, we proved that this theoretical approach is still acceptable due to the excellent agreement between the theoretical and simulation approaches.
