We theoretically analyze dominant plasma modes in a two-dimensional disk of electron gas by calculating the absorption of an incident electromagnetic wave. The problem is solved in a self-consistent approximation, taking into account electromagnetic retardation effects. We use the Drude model to describe the conductivity of the system. The absorption spectrum exhibits a series of peaks corresponding to the excitation of plasma waves. The position and linewidth of the peaks designating…
