Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The international workshop PLASMONICA 2019 is a forum devoted to discussing recent advantages in the field of plasmonics and nanophotonics, favoring new collaborations on challenging scientific problems.

The workshop topics include all aspects of plasmonic research, as follows:

  • Plasmonic and dielectric nanoantennas
  • Nonlinear plasmonics
  • Quantum plasmonics
  • Metamaterials
  • Scattering
  • Nanophotonics and hybrid plasmonics
  • Plasmon-exciton polaritons
  • Thermo-plasmonics
  • Magneto-plasmonics
  • Terahertz
  • Sensor and biosensors
  • Devices and applications
  • Spectroscopy and nano-imaging
  • Ultrafast nano-optics

The Special Issue will preferebly provide the expanded version of the original works selected for the conference PLASMONICA 2019, but will not be strictly restricted to. Plasmonic interested scholars can submit papers.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.

This study theoretically proposed a novel surface plasmon resonance biosensor by incorporating emerging two dimensional material blue phosphorus and graphene layers with plasmonic gold film. The excellent performances employed for biosensing can be realized by accurately tuning the thickness of gold film and the number of blue phosphorus interlayer. Our proposed plasmonic biosensor architecture designed by phase modulation is much superior to angular modulation, providing 4 orders of magnitude sensitivity enhancement. In addition, the optimized stacked configuration is 42 nm Au film/2-layer blue phosphorus /4-layer graphene, which can produce the sharpest differential phase of 176.7661 degrees and darkest minimum reflectivity as low as 5.3787 × 10−6. For a tiny variation in local refractive index of 0.0012 RIU (RIU, refractive index unit) due to the binding interactions of aromatic biomolecules, our proposed biosensor can provide an ultrahigh detection sensitivity up to 1.4731 × 105 °/RIU, highly promising for performing ultrasensitive biosensing application.
