We present a theoretical study of the modifications of the radiative and nonradiative decay rates of an optical emitter in close proximity to a noble-metal nanosphere, based on exact electrodynamical theory. We show that the optimal nanosphere diameter for luminescence quantum efficiency enhancement associated with resonant coupling to plasmon modes is in the range of $30\char21{}110\phantom{\rule{0.3em}{0ex}}\mathrm{nm}$, depending on the material properties. The optimal diameter is found to… CONTINUE READING
