Grating-coupled surface plasmon resonance (SPR) is demonstrated with one-dimensional gratings fabricated on the surface of bulk stainless steel using imprinting combined with electrochemical etching. The extent of light coupling and the wavelengths of SPR peaks were characterized with respect to the incident angle and polarization states of the light. When the plane of incidence was orthogonal to the grating grooves, only TM polarization was absorbed at two different wavelengths. In the plane of incidence parallel to the grooves, a single resonance peak was observed only when the incident light was TE-polarized. The dependence of SPR wavelengths on the incident angle was in good agreement with theoretical consideration.
