We describe a parallel scan spectral surface plasmon resonance (SPR) imaging technique. We demonstrate experimentally, with a line-shaped light illumination, that an image acquired with an area CCD detector provides both SPR wavelength information and one-dimensional spatial distribution. Thus two-dimensional distribution of the refractive index of the entire sensing plane can be obtained with a one-dimensional optical line parallel scan. The technique offers advantages of both high sensitivity and high throughput, and could have potential applications in biochips analysis.
