  • A high-sensitivity Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR) sensor comprising of an eccentric core ten-fold Photonic Quasi-crystal Fiber (PQF) with a D-shaped structure and partially coated with Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) is designed and numerically analyzed. The eccentric core D-shaped structure makes the analysis of liquids more convenient and also strengthens the coupling between the core mode and Surface Plasmon  Polariton (SPP) mode to improve the sensing sensitivity. The characteristics of the sensor are investigated by the Finite Element Method (FEM). The wavelength sensitivity increases with increasing Refractive Indexes (RIs) and the maximum wavelength sensitivity and resolution are 60000 nm/RIU and 1.67×10−6 RIU, respectively. The sensor delivers excellent performance and has large potential applications in the measurement of liquid refractive indexes.
