We combine plasmonic grating structures with semiconductor laser-diode packages to realize a prototype of miniaturized chemical/biosensor. The advantages of such a device include compact size, low cost, energy effectiveness, long device lifetime, stable performance, and label-free sensing, which should have commercialization potential.
