In this work, we use a nanoimprint lithography fabrication technology to create uniformly-oriented and homogenous noble metal nanoparticle arrays with wellcontrolled size, shape and spacing, which can be the basis platform for the development of Localized Surface Plasmon Resonance (LSPR) sensors for biomolecular detection. Using this approach, we demonstrate proof-of-principle of an optical biosensor to quantify biomolecular interactions in a real-time mode using a UV-visible spectrophotometer.
