Paper Abstract

In this paper, the focusing of laser light at 532 nm by dielectric cylinders with a metal shells is studied by using COMSOL Multiphysics. The analysis of cylinder design which proposed multilayered shell shows that a microcylinder with a gold-silver (or silver-gold) shell can improve the focusing process, especially in the case of TM polarization. The microcylinder with thin internal silver layer of 1 nm and outside gold layer of 9 nm focus TE-polarized light to nanojet with maximal intensity of 5.65 a.u., full width and full length at half maximum of intensity of of 0.39λ and 0.72λ, respectively.
