The use of linear and circular subwavelength gratings for improving the fluorescence extraction from organic dyes spotted on the surface of a one-dimensional photonic crystal is demonstrated. The one-dimensional photonic crystal hosting the gratings allows Bloch surface waves (BSWs) to be coupled in the visible range. We provide experimental evidence for the distributed diffraction of BSW-coupled fluorescence that is locally excited using a microscope-based setup. By diffracting the BSW-coupled fluorescence, a significant improvement in the total fluorescence collection is obtained as compared to a flat one-dimensional photonic crystal.
