[1]Institute of Physics, Wrocław University of Technology, Wrocław, Poland

Surface plasmon resonance in metallic nanoparticles is highly and shape dependent, which enables varius applications in photovoltaics, photonics, sensing and even medicine. Particularly we observe redshift in plasmon resonance with increasing nanoparticle size. We investigate nanoparticle size influence on plasmon resonance within theoretical and numerical approach and compare results with ...

J. Kaerst
HAWK, Fachhochschule Hildesheim/Holzminden/Göttingen, Germany

In this paper resonances in tapered double-port TEM waveguides are used as benchmark for simulations. FEM simulations with COMSOL Multiphysics® and simulations using generalised telegraphist's equations with MATLAB® are compared to ananalytical method capable of calculating the resonances of higher order modes. It is valid for tapered double-port TEM waveguides with constant ...

Recently it has been proved theoretically (Miñano et al, 2011) that the super-resolution up to ? /500 can be achieved using an ideal metallic Spherical Geodesic Waveguide (SGW). This SGW is as a theoretical design, in which the conductive walls are considered to be lossless conductors with zero thickness. In this paper, we study some key parameters that might influence the super resolution ...
