Various kinds of field enhancement and hot spot generation can be implemented by the use of surface plasmon resonance. There have been intensive researches in recent years for using them especially for sensor applications or molecular level detection. In this presentation, I will overview and compare recent approaches by various research groups on plasmonic transmission, reflection, nano-structure, interferometer, and resonator sensor types. And then, I will discuss my group’s work on metallic nano-structures, structured optical fibre tips, nano-antennas, plasmonic arbitrary intensity pattern generations, and metallic nano-particle arranging methods.
