Surface Plasmon and Surface Wave Microscopy

Abstract

Surface plasmons (SPs) — or surface plasmon polaritons — are guided electromagnetic surface waves [1]. In their simplest form these are bound in a metallic or conducting layer sandwiched between two dielectrics. The confinement of these waves makes them particularly attractive as chemical and biological sensors being especially sensitive probes of interfacial properties [2,3]. On the other hand, the fact that SPs have characteristics distinct from bulk waves means that the optimum way to perform high resolution microscopy differs significantly from other microscopy techniques.
