Abstract

A novel surface plasmon resonance (SPR) biosensor based on Ag-Au bimetallic films with a hybrid structure of blue phosphorene (BlueP)/transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs) and graphene is presented. In order to improve the sensitivity, the thickness of silver and gold films is optimized to achieve minimum reflectivity and an adequate level of sensitivity; further, sensitivity for the monolayer ${\rm BlueP}/{{\rm MoS}_2}$ and graphene structure is enhanced by 19.73%, with respect to a traditional sensor. Besides, the effect of layers of different Blue/TMDCs heterostructures to the sensitivity of the SPR biosensor is investigated, and the highest sensitivity with 335.4°/RIU for the bilayer ${\rm BlueP}/{{\rm WS}_2}$ is obtained. Furthermore, distributions of the electric field and the changes of resonance angle to the refractive index of the sensing medium and prism in the visible regime are illustrated at optimal configuration. In virtue of highly sensitive characteristics, the proposed sensor structure will be a much better option to be employed for further biological detection.
