Special Issue Information
Biosensors based on surface plasmon resonance (SPR) are utilized in biosensing in numerous ways today. The several applications range from clinical detection, disease diagnosis, food allergen and pathogen determination to drug screening, quantitative and qualitative assays, and biocatalysis. As a reliable, fast, and customizable technique, SPR has been assessed in recent years as a tool for the detection and quantification of biomolecules. Different SPR setups and strategies have been developed by researchers, reaching sensitive, specific, and real-time detections.
This Special Issue aims to harvest the latest advances in SPR-based biosensors, focusing on the most innovative materials, bioassays, and other applications developed for SPR biosensing.

Highly Sensitive WS2/Au/Graphene layer-based Surface Plasmon Resonance Biosensor for Cancer Detection
Authors: Shahriar Mostufa, Tarik Bin Abdul akib, Dr. Masud Rana, and Dr. Rabiul Islam
Abstract: In this article, we proposed WS2/Au/Graphene layer-based surface plasmon resonance (SPR) sensor with improved sensitivity and detection capability for cancer detection. The finite element method (FEM) with perfectly matched layers is engaged for numerical analysis. Angular detection method is employed to calculate the sensitivities concerning refractive index (RI) variations. The refractive index (RI) varied from 1.36 to 1.401 for six different types of cancerous cells. According to numerical results, the obtained sensitivities for the skin (Basal), cervical (HELA), adrenal gland (PC12), blood (Jurkat), and breast (MCF-7 and MDA-MB- 231) cancer are 205 deg/RIU, 241.667 deg/RIU, 278.57 deg/RIU, 250 deg/RIU, 285.71 deg/RIU, 285.71 deg/RIU respectively. Obtained numerical results have indicated that, the highest sensitivities for angular detection methods are reported as 285.71 deg/RIU for breast (MCF-7 and MDA-MB- 231) cancer. Numerical results obtained in this manuscript are comparable with previously presented studies in the literature.
