In nanotechnology, a particle is defined as a small object that behaves as a whole unit in terms of its transport and properties. It is further classified according to size: in terms of diameter, fine particles cover a range between 100 and 2500nanometers, while ultrafine particles, on the other hand, are sized between 1 and 100 nanometers. Similar to ultrafine particles, nanoparticles are sized between 1 and 100 nanometers.

How can I simulate a gold capped silicon nanoparticle (diameter: 250nm, 500nm, 1000nm, 2000nm) to find absorption spectra?
Closed | Responses: 1
I have made silicon nanoparticles (diameter: 250nm, 500nm, 1000nm, 2000nm) with half of it covered with 20-30 nm gold. Is there a way to find the plasmon resonances, absorption spectra etc.?
