Auto assembled Ag-ZnO  star shaped nanostructures depicted in figure 1, presents their natural electromagnetic resonance at 60 THz. In this work we present that is possible to change this value by covering it with a variable in thickness layer of gold. The analysis is performed by numerical simulations using COMSOL Multiphysics® software.
