A plasmonic sensor which can detect the refractive index and the polarization of incident light is proposed. The sensor is based on a gold composite structure constructed from a gold film which was etched a plurality of circular arc-shaped slits. The transmission spectra of the composite structure are theoretically studied using the finite-difference time-domain method (FDTD), and the influence of structure parameters on the transmission spectra are also studied. Moreover, it was found that the transmission spectra of are sensitive to environment refractive index, which can be used to detect refractive index. Specifically, the sensitivity of 550 nm/RIU was obtained after optimizing the structure parameters. Due to the asymmetry of the sensor structure, this design can also detect the polarization direction of light.
