Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Because of their great sensitivity, surface plasmon resonance (SPR) sensors have been actively investigated as a sensing mechanism for chemical and biological molecules in recent years. On the other hand, the utilization of nanostructures and advances in thin film production processes have permitted the development of more sensitive sensing devices that can be multiplexed. The unique optical and electrical characteristics of nanomaterials and dielectric films have enabled the progress of applications such as localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) and surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS). Furthermore, lithographic patterning of nanopatterned structures has resulted in high spatial resolution surface structures, while improving system sensitivity. In this Special Issue, we would like to compile the most recent theoretical and experimental research results related to this measurement principle, sensing formats, fabrication techniques, integration with artificial intelligence, optimization, and applications of surface plasmon sensors in industrial situations.

Therefore, we invite you to submit original research or review articles for this Special Issue, with emphasis on the most recent advances in SPR, or LSPR-based chemosensors, and their applications to the examination of chemical and biological samples.

Mezcal is a traditional Mexican spirit produced by distilling fermented agave, with a unique taste directly related to its volatile compound composition. Thus, the present research proposed the surface plasmon resonance (SPR) technique as a potential method to differentiate mezcals, studying several parameters at angular interrogations and at a fixed angle. The study evaluated eight mezcals from different agave species using SPR and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS). Despite the similarities in mezcal spirits corresponding to the same ethanol content and the same artisanal method, it was possible to obtain well-differentiated characteristics by SPR parameters, such as the width of the curve, the resonant angle, and reflectance intensities. Therefore, it was possible to demonstrate the potential use of the SPR technique as a rapid first approach to a screening test to differentiate types of spirits. Full article
