Plasmon and grid resonances in the electromagnetic scattering by finite grids of silver nanowires
The problem of the H-polarized wave scattering by finite chains of circular nanowires is considered. A two-dimensional diffraction problem with rigorous boundary conditions is solved by partial separations of variables method using local polar coordinates of each scatterer. The obtained results demonstrate convergence of the algorithm and good agreement with data known for the conducting and dielectric cylinders. Plasmonic and grid resonances are found and calculated for grids from a big number of silver nanowires. This opens a way to the accurate numerical simulation of various finite configurations of wires met in today's nano and microsize photonic devices.
