Abstract

We present an analytical treatment of the optical scattering from film-coupled nanocubes. We make use of the plasmon dispersion relation to avoid direct calculation of the effective inductance per unit length—which would include kinetic inductance contributions—instead calculating the effective waveguide mode index to incorporate plasmonic contributions. We compare the analytically derived field enhancement and spectral characteristics of the film-coupled nanoparticles with those obtained from full-wave finite-element simulations.
