Abstract

We demonstrate the use of tilted fiber gratings to assist the generation of localized infrared surface plasmons with short propagation lengths and a sensitivity of d λ / dn = 3365   nm in the aqueous index regime. It was also found that the resonances could be spectrally tuned over 1000   nm at the same spatial region with high coupling efficiency (in excess of 25   dB ) by altering the polarization of the light illuminating the device.
