Paper Abstract

The optical properties of metallic nanoshell systems are investigated using the Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) method. The method provides a convenient approach for calculating several physical properties of nanoshells based structures including the optical absorption and scattering cross sections as well as the local electromagnetic fields near the nanoshell surfaces. The method is applied to silver and gold nanoshells and nanoshell dimers. Comparisons with classical Mie scattering are presented.
