This presentation reports the fabrication and testing of different configurations of optical sensor systems based on Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR) at the interface of a liquid sample and sandwiched structures realized starting from the exposed core of a Plastic Optical Fiber (POF). The proposed geometries have proven to be suitable for measuring the refractive indexes of liquids whose refractive index falls around 1.350.

Furthermore, the proposed sensing head, being low cost and relatively easy to realize. The planar gold layer and refractive index ranging from 1.330 to 1.420 are two good factors for forthcoming bio and chemical sensors implementation.
