The proposed sensor has the advantages of competitive durability and fast and real-time detection based on the evanescent field coupling between the OMF and the polymer planar waveguide.
The resonance angle depends on the refractive index contrast near the interface in the evanescent field. The MX96 SPRi device (IBIS Technologies) monitors the resonance angle continuously over time to detect RI changes in the evanescent field of selected regions of interest in a field of view of 7.8 x 4.7 mm.

Here through the ATR prism an evanescent field was generated, which interacted with the sample, and thereby an eigen mode was excited, provided its wave number equalled that of the evanescent field.
The interaction between SAs and the signal light can be directional transmission or evanescent field coupling [9].
Part of the light will penetrate into the upper cladding layer and this portion of light is known as the evanescent field.
