# Laplacian-Level Quantum Hydrodynamic Theory for Plasmonics

@article{Baghramyan2020LaplacianLevelQH, title={Laplacian-Level Quantum Hydrodynamic Theory for Plasmonics}, author={Henrikh M. Baghramyan and Fabio Della Sala and Cristian Cirac{\`i}}, journal={arXiv: Mesoscale and Nanoscale Physics}, year={2020} }

An accurate description of the optical response of subwavelength metallic particles and nanogap structures is a key problem of plasmonics. Quantum hydrodynamic theory (QHT) has emerged as a powerful method to calculate the optical response of metallic nanoparticles since it takes into account nonlocality and spill-out effects. Nevertheless, the absorption spectra of metallic particles from QHT is affected, at energies higher than the main plasmon peak, by several additional peaks, which are…
