Paper Abstract

We present a theoretical overview of key physical limitations for application-oriented nanostructure design. We focus on such promising applications as: nanodot-assisted optical imaging, and photo-thermal therapy with the help of nanostructures. For these applications we consider the following nanostructures: metal-coated nanoshells and metal nanoparticles. The actual design of relevant nanoobjects for particular applications must include consideration of such phenomena as: plasmon resonance, light scattering, light absorption. These phenomena are considered for model systems of various designs for different parameters of radiation. Our model estimations are compared with experimental results when such results are available. The conclusions are formulated as a paradigm "desired vs. feasible".
