Abstract

The development of plasmonic sensors mainly focuses on the improvement of their sensitivities that are approaching the theoretical limit. This work aims to propose, fabricate and characterize compact sensing platforms that are highly adaptable and easy to be miniaturized, without compromising their sensitivities. A plasmonic sensing system that allows the excitation of localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) by individual waveguide modes is presented conceptually and experimentally. Another compact sensing platform is proposed based on the ensemble hypothesis developed in this thesis.
