Van der Waals interactions in density functional theory
Various density functional methods have been tested for the van der Waals interactions of the rare gas dimers He$\rm\sb2,\ Ne\sb2$ and Ar$\sb2$ as model compounds. Detailed analysis proved that all tested and commonly used ...
The designer optical resonances of metal nanoshells
Metal nanoshells consist of a dielectric or semiconducting core coated with a metallic layer of nanometer scale dimensions. Gold nanoshells with silica cores were fabricated by first attaching gold colloid to the surface ...
Trace gas detection of chemical species
The theory of continuous wave difference frequency generation (DFG) is studied for a mixing of two waves in a nonlinear medium, the absorption effect of the material is included and optimization conditions are studied. ...
Nanoparticle assemblies and interactions
Silica nanoparticles coated with functionalized organosilane molecules are used as substrates for the formation of assemblies of gold nanoparticles. In an assembly of nanoparticles, the optical response of each nanoparticle ...
