Paper Abstract

The plasmon hybridization method is a powerful approach for calculating the energies of plasmon resonances in composite nanostructures. It is shown that the plasmons of a complex nanostructure can be viewed as resulting from hybridization of the elementary plasmon modes associated with the different surfaces of the nanostructure. This interaction leads to the formation of bonding and anti-bonding plasmon modes. The picture is entirely analogous to the interaction of electronic levels in molecular orbital theory. We present an application to spherical nanoparticles such as metallic nanoshells and concentric nanoshells (nanomatrushkas), nanoparticle dimers, and nanoparticles interacting with metallic surfaces.
