The SPR fiber sensors are reproducible and have the capability of real-time dynamic measurement. Since optical fiber has the advantages of small size, low weight, and flexible capacity, which enable the SPR fiber sensors, with small sensing area, to sense small-volume samples to extensive sensing range and provide various applications.
In this paper, we use gold nanoparticles deposited on the gold film surface, with same shape and the same size, to improve the sensitivity of SPR fiber sensors. The SPR fiber sensors we proposed have been applied to measure the melamine solution with low concentration. Compared to the data of ordinary SPR fiber sensor with gold film only, the SPR sensing wavelength shifts from the region of 600∼700 nm to the region of 750∼800 nm. This longer wavelength region is very close to the low-loss window of 820∼850 nm for the fiber. Besides, the wavelength shift of the SPR dip is from 2∼7 nm for the ordinary gold film only compared to 10∼20 nm for those sensors with extra gold nanoparticles deposition while the normalized intensity of the SPR dip is 0.5∼0.7 ％ for the ordinary gold film compared to 1∼1.5 ％ for those sensors with
extra gold nanoparticles deposition also based on the above evidences. It is clear that the sensitivity of the SPR fiber sensor can be improved significantly by using gold nanoparticles deposited on the gold film surface.
