Abstract:

An exhaustive numerical analysis of different metallic materials that may offer new plasmonic applications in the UV range has been performed. In particular, we have studied, in both Far and Near-field configurations, the plasmonic response of metallic nanoparticles deposited on substrates through numerical procedures based either on the discrete dipole approximation DDA or on finite elements methods COMSOL. Also, the effects of nanoparticle geometry, scattering configuration and single or multiple particle contribution have been analyzed. This study is relevant for the construction of spectroscopic tools in the UV range based on plasmonic effects for applications of surface enhanced techniques.
