Paper Abstract

This work considers the application of Effective-Medium Approximation to the case of thin inhomogeneous layer like a layer of nanoparticles on a surface. It is shown that Effective-Medium Approximation models built for the case of bulk composites are not able to describe the optical properties on thin layers. Another approach based on the Green function formalism and accounted all interparticle interactions is proposed to construct the effective polarizability of such a layer, which can be considered as two-dimensional analogue of standard Effective-Medium Approximation for bulk media.
