Optical singularities associated with the energy flow of two closely spaced core-shell nanocylinders.

Optical singularities associated with the energy flow of two closely spaced dielectric-core gold-shell nanocylinders are studied by two-dimensional finite difference time domain method. The simulation results show that optical vortices as well as saddle points can be observed in the energy flow pattern of light interacting with the core-shell nanocylinder… CONTINUE READING
