The surface plasmon resonance technique for molecular detection and analysis is reviewed, for example for monitoring binding of molecules to surfaces and for enhancing Raman spectroscopy. The possibility of modifying the emission and radiative decay rates of fluorophores by surface plasmon resonance is reviewed. Specifically, it concerns surface plasmon-coupled directional emission at planar structures.
Keywords: Surface plasmon resonance (SPR), Surface enhanced raman scattering (SERS), Radiative decay engineering (RDE), Surface plasmon coupled emission (SPCE)
