When optical components are reduced to the nanoscale, they exhibit interesting properties that can be harnessed to create new devices. For example, imagine a block of material with thin layers of alternating materials. This creates a periodic arrangement of alternating dielectric constants, forming a "photonic crystal" that is analogous to the electronic crystals used in semiconductor devices. Photonic crystals, along with quantum dots and other devices patterned at the nanoscale, may form the basis for sensors and switches used in computers and telecommunications.

Can anyone please tell me how would I perform the theoretical calculation of single silica nanoparticles as well as aggregates of silica nanoaparticles.
Local dielectric function of nanomaterial
Closed | Responses: 1
Is there any significant deviation observed in local/microscopic dielectric function (both real and imaginary part)of nanostructure material from the same for bulk material? If this deviation is …
