Abstract

We explore periodic gold nanoposts as substrates for the enhanced surface plasmon resonance imaging (SPRi) detection of DNA hybridization. Rigorous coupled-wave analysis was used to model and design the nanopost-based SPRi biosensor. Arrayed gold nanoposts on gold-coated glass substrate, with various widths and periodicity, were fabricated using electron-beam lithography and characterized with scanning electron and atomic force microscopy. A scanning-angle SPRi apparatus was used to conduct the kinetic analysis of DNA hybridization on nanopost-based sensor surface and assess the corresponding SPR signal amplification. Experimental results showed that both the nanostructure size and period influenced the SPR signal enhancement; the optimized 30 nm height, 50 nm size, and 110 nm period nanoposts provided a fivefold SPR signal amplification compared with the plain 50 nm thick gold film used as control.
