Integral Equations in the General Theory of Light Absorption and Scattering

Section: Nanosystems
Original Author's Text: Ukrainian/English

Abstract: The problem of light absorption and scattering has been reduced to the solution of a singular
integral equation for the complex vector of electric feld intensity inside a nanoparticle. The
dipole approximation is chosen as the initial one. The results of computing experiments testify
to an acceptable agreement between the approach proposed for the consideration of the electric
feld inside a spherical nanoparticle and the results available for the optical and emission
properties of metal nanoclusters.

Key words: metal nanoclusters, optical properties, integral equation, computing experiment.
