The Analysis of Ag Nanospheres and Arrays LSPR Phenomena Based on DDA and FDTD Method
The Discrete Dipole Approximation (DDA) method and the Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) method are used to analyze silver nanospheres with different radius and the coupling of nanospheres array complementarily. DDA method is used for simulating the extinction spectra of single silver nanosphere and nanospheres array; and the coupling of two nanospheres and their surrounding electric field distribution are simulated by FDTD method. Through these results, we got some important conclusions of nanoparticles’ Localized Surface Plasmon Resonance (LSPR) phenomenon.
