Critical performance of three-layer surface plasmon-based sensor is computed at visible spectra. Reflectance is calculated at wider range of incidence angle and also for different thicknesses of gold layer. A sharp dip is observed at reflectance profile when propagation constant of incident wave and that of plasmon surface becomes nearly equal. Field enhancement is also obtained for different structural parameters. Findings will play important role in designing optical sensor at visible range for bio applications.
