Plasmonic metamaterials for chiral sensing applications

Author affiliations


Plasmonic metamaterials are artificially designed materials which exhibit optical properties that cannot be found in nature. They have unique and special abilities related to electromagnetic wave control, including strong field enhancement in the vicinity of the surfaces. Over the years, scientists have succeeded in dramatically improving the detection limit of molecular chirality utilizing a variety of plasmonic metamaterial platforms. In this mini-review, we will discuss the principles of most recent issues in chiral sensing applications of plasmonic metamaterials, including suggested formulas for signal enhancement of chiroptical plasmonic sensors, and studies on various platforms that employ different sensing mechanisms.
