Temperature sensor, Gold grating surface plasmon resonance, Macroscopic scale.


In this work a study of the effect from temperature on surface plasmon polariton (SPP) is proposed. On a macroscopic scale, as a consequence in the variation of temperature, materials show dilation or contraction. Thus, based on SPP effect, using the gold grating surface plasmon resonance configuration, a novel temperature sensor design is characterized.
