Abstract

In this paper, a plasmonic nanosensor, by using a nanorod array in a square resonator coupled with two slot cavities, with properties for the detection of glucose concentration in water, is proposed and analyzed. We investigated the sensing feature by changing the concentration of the glucose from 0 to 60%. Obtained results show that, by placing different water samples in a square resonator and two cavities, resonance wavelengths can be changed. These resonances demonstrate different dependence on the glucose concentration of water samples. Further, varying the physical parameters of the configuration can also change the resonance wavelength and can be simply tuned. These features recommend flexibility to propose the structure. Simulation results show that the values of sensitivity and figure of merit can be obtained as 892 nm/RIU and 3.5×106  RIU1, respectively, which can help researchers to discover applications in the plasmonic sensor domain.
