Abstract

The concept of a Microstructured Optical Fiber-based Surface Plasmon Resonance sensor with optimized microfluidics is proposed. In such a sensor plasmons on the inner surface of large metallized channels containing analyte can be excited by a fundamental mode of a single mode microstructured fiber. Phase matching between plasmon and a core mode can be enforced by introducing air filled microstructure into the fiber core, thus allowing tuning of the modal refractive index and its matching with that of a plasmon. Integration of large size microfluidic channels for efficient analyte flow together with a single mode waveguide of designable effective refractive index is attractive for the development of integrated highly sensitive MOF-SPR sensors operating at any designable wavelength.

a) Schematic of a MOF-based SPR sensor. Holes in the second layer are filled with analyte and metallized for plasmon excitation. Air filled holes in the first layer enable guiding in the higher refractive index fiber core, while at the same time controlling coupling strengths between the core mode and a plasmon. Small air filled hole in the fiber core is used to lower the refractive index of a core guided mode to facilitate phase matching with a plasmon. b) Field distribution of a core mode at the first plasmon resonance at λ=560nm. c) Field distribution of a core mode at the second plasmon resonance at λ=950nm. d) Alternative schematic featuring larger microfluidic channel. e) Field distribution of a core mode at the plasmon resonance at λ=650nm for crossection d).

Calculated loss spectra of the MOF core guided mode exhibiting three loss peaks corresponding to the excitation of various plasmonic modes in the metallized holes. Black solid line -na =1.33, blue doted line -na =1.34. For comparison, red dashed-line shows the confinement loss of a core guided mode in the absence of a metal coating.
