Norman Carl Edward, Kastl Katja Franziska: An encoded carrier for analysing a chemical species using surface plasmon resonance. Toshiba Res Europ, December 13, 2006: GB2427022-A (4 worldwide citation)

An encoded carrier comprises a code region having a code and a separate reaction region. The reaction region has a substantially circular diffraction grating on its surface and is configured to support surface plasmons. Incident radiation couples to surface plasmons at a peak angle of incidence. Pre ...
