White Light Emitting Diodes (WLEDs) have been replacing traditional and less efficient lights, but they can still be further improved with greater efficiency. Core-Shell nanowires could theoretically dramatically increase WLED efficiency due to plasmon resonances. My project was to build a simulation tool for Nanohub.org. The tool that I made is called “Optical Properties of Single Coaxial Nanowires -LDOS and Purcell Factor”, or NWLDOS. The tool can be used to calculate the Local Density to States, and the Purcell Factor (PF) of single nanowires (NWs), with a core and up to 2 shells. This tool is able to simulate a variety of metal and semiconductor materials.
