article description
It is demonstrated that ultrahigh-resolution angular measurement can be achieved via surface-plasmonresonance excitation in which the phase difference between p-and s-polarized reflected waves is monitored as a function of the incidence angle. Resolutions down to 1.9×10 deg are obtained by performing the measurements at optimal incident wavelengths. This represents an order of magnitude improvement compared with previously reported values. © 2005 Optical Society of America.
