Below some books I found interesting to read and used to make this site.
|Surface Plasmon Resonance Sensors - A Materials Guide to Design and Optimization
Leiva Casemiro Oliveira, Antonio Marcus Nogueira Lima, Carsten Thirstrup, Helmut Franz Neff
Springer 2015, ca. 183 p.
ISBN 3319149261, 9783319149264
This book addresses the important physical phenomenon of Surface Plasmon Resonance or Surface Plasmon Polaritons in thin metal films, a phenomenon which is exploited in the design of a large variety of physico-chemical optical sensors. In this treatment, crucial materials aspects for design and optimization of SPR sensors are investigated and outlined in detail. The text covers the selection of nanometer thin metal films, ranging from free-electron to the platinum type conductors, along with their combination with a large variety of dielectric substrate materials, and associated individual layer and opto-geometric arrangements. Furthermore, as-yet hardly explored SPR features of selected metal–metal and metal–dielectric super lattices are included in this report.
|Surface Plasmon Resonance Based Sensors
Series: Springer Series on Chemical Sensors and Biosensors, Vol. 4
Homola, Jirí (Ed.)
Springer 2006, XII, 251 p., hardcover
Also available online
The book is divided into three parts. Part I introduces readers to the fundamental principles of surface plasmon resonance (bio)sensors and covers the electromagnetic theory of surface plasmons, the theory of SPR sensors and molecular interactions at sensor surfaces. Part II presents a review of the state of the art in the development of SPR sensor instrumentation and functionalization methods. Part III discusses applications of SPR biosensors for study of molecules and their interactions and detection of chemical and biological analytes related to environmental monitoring, food safety and security and medical diagnostics.
