Optical Scattering Off of a Gold Nanosphere

Application ID: 14697


This model demonstrates the simulation of the scattering of a plane wave of light by a gold nanosphere. The scattering is computed for the optical frequency range over which gold can be modeled as a material with negative complex-valued permittivity. The far-field pattern and losses are computed.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
