Tutorial 1 - Features of reflectivity curves
As we look at the plasmon resonance we can determine three different areas of interest:
- The edge of total internal reflection. We will learn that this feature is not just there for some strange physical reasons: it is also an important feature to validate our measurement.
- The resonance angle (or “the plasmon” itself). The actual angular position but also the depth will be important to learn something from “the plasmon”.
- The full width at half maximum. Optical constants do matter. We will see how.
