Diffraction of light by a nanowire

  title={Diffraction of light by a nanowire},
  author={Katarzyna Krzy.zanowska and Sergey Leble},
  journal={arXiv: Classical Physics},
A general scattering problem of a plane electromagnetic wave on an infinite cylindrical rod is formulated and solved in a form of Bessel functions series expansion. The conductivity account via Ohm law directly in Maxwell equation leads to complex wavenumber and hence the complex arguments of Bessel functions inside the cylinder. The general formula for averaged by period Pointing vector is derived. For numerical calculations asymptotics of Bessel functions are used. Dependence of scattered…

A precise optical determination of nanoscale diameters of semiconductor nanowires

An optical method based on dark field optical microscopy is presented to easily determine the diameters of individual NWs with an accuracy of a few nanometers and thus a relative error of less than 10%.
