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.
