This paper presents the design and fabrication of a fiber-optic refractive index (RI) sensor. The novel concept employs a long-period fiber grating (LPG) to achieve surface plasmon resonance (SPR) of a single cladding mode at the gold-coated tip of a single-mode fiber. The sensor combines a high level of sensitivity, a miniaturized sensing area and simple intensity-based interrogation, and is intended for biosensing using portable point-of-care devices or highly integrated lab-on-chip systems.
