Design considerations for the metallic nanoparticles for biosensing were introduced firstly. Then the commonly used nanofabrication approaches were presented. After that, one important application, localized surface plasmon polritons (LSPR)-based immunoassay using the nanoparticles array was illustrated. Finally, the LSPR-related photothermal therapy was briefly described.

Metallic nanoparticles array being used as sensors for biosensing is a major application of nanophotonic devices, especially for the localized surface plasmon resonant (LSPR) effect-based nano-biosensors. It is an important approach for immunoassay. Numerous biosamples can be detected by means of the LSPR-based nano-biosensors such as biotin,[1] amyloid-derived diffusible ligands,[2] and Staphylococcus aureus enterotoxin B etc.[3] It becomes appealing for biological researchers due to its advantages of portable, cost effective, light weight, small volume, and simple system in comparison to the conventional SPR system, e.g., Bicore system.
