Abstract

We report on the experimental characterization of the peculiar properties of surface electromagnetic waves propagating at the truncation facet of finite one dimensional dielectric photonic crystals. Such waves are generally known as Bloch surface waves. In particular we show results on the direct experimental comparison of the performance of Bloch surface wave and surface plasmon polariton based optical biosensors and on the application of Bloch surface waves in fluorescence microscopy.
