Special Session (ID: SS-HAM)
Homogenization and applications in the modelling of nanoplasmonic sensors
Organizers: Chitra Rangan (University of Windsor)
Gold and silver nanoparticle and nanofilm sensors are the next generation of technologies for chemo and bio sensing. These sensors are based on 'plasmonics' - the study of collective charge excitations at the interface of a metal (such as gold) and dielectric (such as glass or water) that are excited by light. The mathematical modelling of such systems involves the homogenization of Maxwell's electromagnetic wave equations in the presence of metal nanostructures arranged in two or three dimensions within a dielectric matrix. The complex dielectric function of the metal nanostructures added to the numerous configurations yield a rich variety of solutions that will be explored in this session.
