In this work, we present high-performance surface plasmonic sensors using gold nanostructures and Bragg photonic structures. The gold film on the Bragg structure provides Tamm plasmon states (TPs). The Fano coupling between higher order TPs and Bloch-wave surface plasmon polariton (BW-SPP) on the gold nanoslit array results in a new hybrid Tamm-plasmon mode. Using finite-difference time-domain calculations, we demonstrate that the hybrid mode has the advantages of high surface sensitivity of BW-SPP mode and high resonant quality of Tamm state. The calculated plasmonic field distribution shows that the hybrid mode has a similar evanescent distribution with BW-SPP mode on gold surface and TPs field in the Bragg structure. The experimental results verify that the hybrid mode has one hundred times higher wavelength sensitivity than the Tamm state. The figure of merit of the hybrid mode is five times better than the BW-SPP mode in conventional nanoslit arrays. The real-time sensorgram further confirms that the hybrid mode has a much higher sensitivity and better signal to noise ratios in the biomolecular interaction measurement.
