Abstract

Based on the configuration of surface plasmon resonance (SPR) sensor, the SPR sensor model is set up, and the thermo-properties of various parts in the model are discussed. The thermo-characteristics of SPR spectra in wavelength interrogation and angular interrogation are investigated. Results show that thermo-optic and dispersion effects in the model deteriorate the sensitivity of SPR sensor, especially the thermo-optic effects. Mathematical expression is established to describe the resonance wavelength or angle, which is dependent of temperature. It demonstrates that the thermo-property of sensing medium excites the fluctuation of resonance wavelength or angle more intensely than that of the substrate or metal film in 1-2 orders. Our theoretical research is consistent with the previous experimental results.
