This paper presents a theoretical analysis of a surface plasmon resonance sensor coupled to a periodic array of spherical gold nanoparticles (AuNps). The sensor is in the Kretschmann configuration and composed by five layers: prism, thin gold film, dielectric insulator, array of AuNps and air. The AuNps layer is modeled with an effective permittivity by the Maxwell-Garnett mixing formula, and the wave propagation is analyzed using a generalized reflection coefficient. The results are presented in terms of reflectivity and modal field distributions for different thickness of the layers and geometry of the AuNps array.

Abstract

This paper presents a theoretical analysis of a surface plasmon resonance sensor coupled to a periodic array of spherical gold nanoparticles (AuNps). The sensor is in the Kretschmann configuration and composed by five layers: prism, thin gold film, dielectric insulator, array of AuNps and air. The AuNps layer is modeled with an effective permittivity by the Maxwell-Garnett mixing formula, and the wave propagation is analyzed using a generalized reflection coefficient. The results are presented in terms of reflectivity and modal field distributions for different thickness of the layers and geometry of the AuNps array.
