Enhanced Spectroscopies and Surface Plasmon Thin-Film Sensors Academic Article uri icon


  • Examples are given starting from the well-known Kretschmann configuration to the addition of high-index dielectric thin films to metals, the addition of gratings, the use of nanosculptured thin films (nano-STFs), and enhanced transmission of nanoslits. Special attention will be given to nano-STFs, which are assemblies of shaped, parallel, and tilted nanorods, prepared using many variants of the basic oblique angle deposition (OAD) technique. Because of the special shapes and nanoscale dimensions of STFs, they …
