Abstract

Conditions of surface-plasmon resonance (SPR) production with use of IR pumping light (800–2300 nm) in the Kretschmann–Raether prism arrangement were investigated. Both calculations and experimental data showed that SPR characteristics in the IR are strongly influenced by the properties of the coupling prism material. Indeed, quite different regularities of plasmon excitation, polarity of sensing response, and sensitivity are observed for two different glasses and silicon. The observed differences in SPR properties are related to essentially different behavior of dispersion characteristics of materials near the SPR coupling point. Methods for improving sensor performance and miniaturizing the SPR technique using novel coupling materials (silicon) are discussed.
