Abstract

We propose an expanded coupled mode theory to analyze sensing performance in a plasmonic slot waveguide side-coupled with a multimode stub resonator. It is confirmed by the finite-difference time-domain simulations. Through adjusting the parameters, we can realize figure of merit (FOM) of 59,010, and the sensitivity S can reach to 75.7. Compared with the plasmonic waveguide systems in recent Letters, our proposed structure has the advantages of easy fabrication, compactness, sensitivity, and high FOM. The proposed theory model and findings provide guidance for fundamental research of the integrated plasmonic nanosensor applications.
