Plasma is a state of matter in which a collection of atoms have dissociated into their constituent ions and electrons. The availability of this free charge allows the plasma to interact with electromagnetic fields. The fields dictate the motion of the particles and, simultaneously, the motion of the particles alter the fields. This strongly coupled,(More)
A recent proof-of-principle study proposes an energy-and charge-conserving, nonlinearly implicit elec-trostatic particle-in-cell (PIC) algorithm in one dimension [Chen et al, The algorithm in the reference employs an unpreconditioned Jacobian-free Newton-Krylov method, which ensures nonlinear convergence at every timestep (resolving the dynamical timescale(More)
We have performed surface plasmon resonance (SPR) experiments at 633 nm in the Kretchmann configuration on prisms coated with single metal and Nichrome alloy thin films of ~ 500 Aring. The thin films used in this study are grown by magnetron sputtering, and are binary alloy films (Nickel/Chrome with 80/20 concentration). In addition, for comparison we will(More)
