Design and Development of Plasmonic Hollow Core Photonic Crystal Fiber for Sensing Applications
We report design and fabrication of specialty hollow core photonic crystal fiber for utilizing them in surface plasmon resonance based material sensing. The refractive index of an unknown fluid can be determined by placing it into the hollow core of the fiber. Surface plasmons are generated by replacing air hole of the cladding selectively by silver or gold.
