Scatterer on a Substrate

Application ID: 14699

A plane TE-polarized electromagnetic wave is incident on a gold nanoparticle on a dielectric substrate. The absorption and scattering cross-sections of the particle are computed for a few different polar and azimuthal angles of incidence. The model first computes a background field from the plane wave incident on the substrate, and then uses that to arrive at the total field with the nanoparticle present.

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