Abstract

A high-sensitivity small-angle sensor based on surface plasmon resonance technology and heterodyne interferometry is proposed that uses a new technique with two right-angle prisms. Interestingly, the technique provides a novel method for designing small-angle sensors with high sensitivity and high resolution. Its theoretical resolution can reach 1.2 × 10 7 rad over the measurement range of 0.15 ° θ 0.15 ° . The method has some merits, e.g., a simple optical setup, easy operation, high resolution, high sensitivity, and rapid measurement. Its feasibility is demonstrated.
