## Mie scattering off plasmonic nanoparticles

Romain Fleury, UT Austin

Email:

This is a general model to simulate light scattering off plasmonic or dielectric nano-particles or spherical nano-structures. I computed the total scattering cross-section (SCS), absorption cross-section (ACS), extinction cross-section (ECS), radar cross-section (RCS) and differential scattering cross-section (dSCS) of gold nanoparticles in the near UV, visible and near infrared range. Material properties are taken from peer-reviewed experimental data (P. B. Johnson and R. W. Christy, “Optical Constants of the Noble Metals,” Phys. Rev. B, vol. 6, no. 12, pp. 4370–4379, Dec. 1972). The model can be used as a starting point to compute the absorption and scattering properties of more complicated structures or metamolecules, with broken spherical symmetry and several constituents. This model completes the tutorial file "Optical Scattering off of a gold nano-sphere", by providing efficient ways to compute the total cross-sections. The obtained results match analytical predictions based on Mie theory.

NB : Models compatible with COMSOL 4.3 and 4.3a are available.To visualize the results, you may need to run the file.

This model will be helpful to my research. |

I have posted a second version in 4.3. Feel free to leave a review after you use the file. |

Kindly, if possible, could you provide the same in v4.2, as I've COMSOL v4.2. |

Thanks. The comsol 4.3 runs well in my computer. |

thank u very much. it works so well |

We add in results: results->3D plot group 2->volume 1, and in the expression, we plot emw.Ez, emw.Ebz, and emw.relEz. We know emw.relEz is the scattered field, and there should be no field in the sphere. But we observed the field in the graphic. Is there anything wrong? Thank u. |

Thanks..your model was really helpful |

hi may I ask a matlab version of the model... I am interested in the script! I can't open the version that you provided, it would be nice if you could save the model as m-file! |

Hi, may I ask for model in 4.2 version. |

Hello, |

I also get monotonically rising SCS for a similar model. What Solution did you find? |

Nov 25, 2015 at 11:13pm UTC |

Thank you for your model. |

Thanks so much! |

Thank you so much for sharing your model. |

Shareen ShafiqueJun 13, 2016 at 2:10am UTC |

thank you so much |

Thank you so much for the model. Can you please explain the formula for differential scattering cross section (dSCS) used in the model? How can this modified to a 2D model? |

Jul 17, 2017 at 9:04am UTC |

2D model only gives scattering in plane, dear |
