Abstract

This work presents an integrated plasmonic biosensing device consisting of a one-dimensional metallic lamellar grating designed to exploit extraordinary transmission of light toward an underlying silicon photodetector. By means of finite element simulations, the grating parameters have been optimized to maximize the light transmission variation induced by the functionalization of the gold nanostructures. An optimized grating was fabricated using an electron beam process and an optoelectronic test bench suitable for sample tests was developed. A clear difference in the grating transmitted light due to surface functionalization was observed in presence of TM polarized illumination.
