A surface plasmon biosensing technique based on real-time measurement of the spectro-angular reflectance spectrum of a gold surface is presented. A significant improvement in refractive index resolution and drift compensation has been achieved for the spectro-angular technique to demonstrate a biosensing platform that is, in addition, applicable to plasmonic bandgap measurements. Instrumental improvements are detailed and constants for the model bovine serum albumin (BSA):oxacillin bioassay are presented.
