A variety of configurations and formats have been devised to exploit the phenomenon of surface plasmon on metal dielectric interfaces for sensing a variety of significant analytes, such as pesticides and explosives, pathogens and toxins, and diseased tissue. Researchers continue to aim at detecting lower concentrations in smaller volumes of samples in real time. A new research field, called nanoplasmnonics, has emerged in this regard.
