Abstract

We numerically analyze the spectral properties of localized plasmon resonances in metal nanoparticles when these are above a dielectric substrate. This analysis is performed as a function of the various parameters involved in the problem (relative optical properties, particle–substrate separation, angle of incidence, etc.). It can be shown that from the spectral behavior of the resonance in the far field, information about particle near-field interactions can be obtained.
