Paper Abstract

While plasmonic nano-antennas typically have a rather basic shape, they still present considerable challenges for numerical simlations. In particular, their small size (compared to the wavelength) and their strong sensitivity to geometrical changes mandates a highly accurate spatial discretization. In this work, we employ a nodal discontinuous Galerkin time-domain technique to investigate the dependence of the fundamental resonance of rod-shaped nano-antennas on a number of geometrical parameters.
