Guided Resonances in Photonic Crystal Slabs for Sensing Applications

Armando Ricciardi, Marco Pisco, Giuseppe Castaldi, Vincenzo Galdi, Stefania Campopiano, Antonello Cutolo and Andrea Cusano


In this Chapter, we provide a compact overview of possible applications of the “guided resonance” phenomenon in photonic crystal slabs to sensing scenarios. More specifically, starting from the outline of the basic aspects, we review a number of selected results from the recent topical literature dealing with applications to displacement, chemical, and biological sensing. Besides theoretical and physical issues, emphasis is also placed on experimental and technological aspects.
