EIIRIS Lunch Colloquia

Date:

Friday 28th Februaruy 2014

Time:

12:15-13:00.

Place: A1-101 Lecture Hall, Toyohashi Tech.
Lecturer: Dr Baryshev Alexander, Tenure Track Associate Professor, EIIRIS
Title: " An approach to visualization of and optical sensing by Bloch surface waves in noble or base metal-based plasmonic photonic crystal slabs. "
Outline:

The Bloch surface wave resonance(SWR) was visualized with the aid of plasmon absorption in a dielectric/metal/dielectric sandwich terminating a one-dimensional photonic crystal. An SWR peak in spectra of such a plasmonic photonic crystal(PPhC) slab comprising a noble or base metal layer was demonstrated to be sensitive to a negligible variation of refractive index of a medium adjoining to the slab. This new concept of PPhC slabs can be of practical importance because the metal layer is protected by a capping dielectric layer from contact with analytes and,consequently, from deterioration. Moreover, in case of PPhC slabs,gold(the key element of the surface plasmon resonance-based biosensors) can be replaced by other metals. The PPhC-based sensors can be low-cost, reusable and robust sensors having a sensitivity significantly surpassing that of the known optical sensors.
