Abstract

Plasmon resonance is the resonant oscillation of conduction electrons at the interface between negative and positive permittivity material stimulated by incident light, which forms the fundamental basis of many cutting-edge industrial applications. We are concerned with the quantitative theoretical understanding of this peculiar resonance phenomenon. It is known that the occurrence of plasmon resonance as well as its quantitative behaviours critically depend on the geometry of the material structure, the corresponding material parameters and the operating wave frequency, which are delicately coupled together. In this paper, we study the plasmon resonance for a 2D nanorod structure, which presents an anisotropic geometry and arises in the transverse electromagnetic scattering. We present delicate spectral and asymptotic analysis to establish the accurate resonant conditions as well as sharply characterize the quantitative behaviours of the resonant field.
