  • The spatial and spectral responses of the plasmonic fields induced in the gap of 3-D nanoshell dimers of gold and silver are comprehensively investigated and compared via theory and simulation using the multipole expansion (ME) and the finite element method (FEM) in COMSOL, respectively. The E-field in the dimer gap was evaluated and compared as a function of shell thickness, interparticle distance, and size. The E-field increased with decreasing shell thickness, decreasing interparticle… CONTINUE READING
