Here, plasmon resonances are treated as an eigenvalue problem for specific boundary integral equations and general physical properties of plasmon spectrum are studied in detail. The coupling of incident radiation to specific plasmon modes, the time dynamics of their excitation and dephasing are also analytically treated. Finally, the applications of plasmon resonances to SERS, light controllability (gating) of plasmon resonances in semiconductor nanoparticles, the use of plasmon resonances in thermally assisted magnetic recording (TAMR), as well as in all-optical magnetic recording and for enhancement of magneto-optic effects are presented.Sample Chapter(s)Chapter 1: Introduction (293 KB)Contents: Introduction: What are Plasmon Resonances?Dispersion RelationsOverview of Book ContentsModal Analysis of Plasmon Resonances in Nanoparticles: Plasmon Resonances as an Eigenvalue ProblemDual FormulationGeneral Properties of Plasmon SpectrumPlasmon Resonances in NanoshellsRelation to the Riemann HypothesisAnalytical and Numerical Analysis of Plasmon Resonances: Some Analytical Solutions for Plasmon ModesNumerical Techniques for the Analysis of Plasmon ModesNumerical ExamplesUniversal Numerical Technique for the Solution of Boundary Integral EquationsAbsorbing Boundary Conditions for Finite-Difference Time-Domain Analysis of Scattering ProblemsRadiation Corrections, Excitation of Plasmon Modes and Selective Applications: Perturbation TechniqueFirst- and Second-Order Radiation CorrectionsAnalysis of Extinction Cross SectionCoupling of Plasmon Modes to Incident Radiation, Time-Dynamics of Their Excitation and DephasingSelective Applications of Plasmon ResonancesReadership: Graduate students and researchers in plasmon resonances in nanoparticles.
