The scattering of waves remains greatly important phenomenon of research focus involving the objects having size parameters ranging from macro- to nano-structured dimensions. Among the others, some of the notable examples would include the radar- and antenna-related applications [1]. Electromagnetic cloaking is greatly dependent on the extent of scattering response [2]. The role of scattering has been discussed in the context of metamaterials comprised of metal-dielectric partners crafted in certain forms [3]. Surface plasmon resonance remains the prime feature as the effects can be tailored depending on the shape and size of meta-atoms [4-6]. VO2 being a phase-changing material [7,8], here we discuss the scattering characteristics of SiO2-VO2 nanoshells considering different core/shell dimensional parameters, and also, the ambient temperature.
