Abstract

We provide further details on the calculation method used in the paper “Surface plasmon interferometer in silicon-on-insulator: novel concept for an integrated biosensor” [Opt. Express 14, 7063–7072 (2006)]. Contrary to the claims made in the Comment [Opt. Express 15, 13649–13650 (2007)], the method used does take radiation modes into account and can therefore handle the recapture of optical power from these modes. Convergence studies are provided to support our calculations.
