Author(s): Alpana Kumari
Abstract: The electromagnetic interaction between a carbon nanotube and a plasmonic nanoparticle is presented in this paper. In this communication the carbon nanotube is modeled using an integral equation involving a quantum mechanical surface conductance and the electrically small nanoparticle is characterized by its dipole moment. The model can be easily adopted to other systems consisting of electrically small objects coupled to larger objects requiring a full-wave treatment. The mathematical solution is provided for the current induced on a nanotube in the presence of a plasmonic nanoparticle.
