Design and development of a surface plasmon resonance set up for sensing applications

2010-01-01 N Laxmi

2010-2012, third and fourth semester. The project was aimed to design and develop a Surface Plasmon Resonance experimental set up to be used for the refractive index sensing. In the project, a low cost set up was made and used as sensor for water and various small concentrations of glucose in water.
