About this book

For the first time, distinguished scientists from key institutions worldwide provide a comprehensive approach to optical sensing techniques employing the phenomenon of guided wave propagation for chemical and biosensors. This includes both state-of the-art fundamentals and innovative applications of these techniques. The authors present a deep analysis of their particular subjects in a way to address the needs of novice researchers such as graduate students and post-doctoral scholars as well as of established researchers seeking new avenues. Researchers and practitioners who need a solid foundation or reference will find this work invaluable.

This first of two volumes contains eight chapters covering planar waveguides for sensing, as well as sensing techniques based on plasmonic waveguides.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The book is divided into six parts. … The authors cover a wide range of strongly related techniques. … I recommend them to novice optical sensor researchers as introduction into the subject. Experienced researchers will benefit from the overview of techniques related to the own subject and the enclosed comprehensive references. … a valuable introduction into the subject for the novice and a reference work for the experienced researcher presenting the state of the art in guided-wave sensors and trends of future development.” (Lothar Leidner, Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, Vol. 399, 2011)
