Near-Field Properties of Plasmonic Nanostructures with High Aspect Ratio
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research, Vol. 146, 77-88, 2014
Abstract
Using the Green's dyad technique based on cuboidal meshing, we compute the electromagnetic field scattered by metal nanorods with high aspect ratio. We investigate the effect of the meshing shape on the numerical simulations. We observe that discretizing the object with cells with aspect ratios similar to the object's aspect ratio improves the computations, without degrading the convergency. We also compare our numerical simulations to finite element method and discuss further possible improvements.
