Flexible transfer of plasmonic photonic structures onto fiber tips for sensor applications in liquids

Abstract

Plasmonic photonic nanostructuring on the end facets of optical fibers may explore extensive applications of the miniaturized devices in sensors. However, the small area on the fiber tips and large aspect ratio of the fiber body largely restrict direct fabrication, which is apparently challenges for most of the nanopatterning techniques. Therefore, efficient and easily applicable transfer techniques are more practical for achieving plasmonic nanodevices on the fiber tips. We report in this work fabrication of plasmonic photonic structures on large-area planar substrates, flexibilization of the structures into thin films, and transfer of them onto the end facets of optical fibers. This enables high-quality functionalization of fiber tips by plasmonic photonic devices, supplying new approaches for sensor applications.
