Transition absorption as a mechanism of surface photoelectron emission from metals
Physica Status Solidi RRL. 2015. Vol. 9. No. 10. P. 570-574.
Transition absorption of a photon by an electron passing through a boundary between two media with different permittivities is described both classically and quantum mechanically. Transition absorption is shown to make a substantial contribution to photoelectron emission at a metal/semiconductor interface in nanoplasmonic systems, and is put forth as a possible microscopic mechanism of the surface photoelectric effect in photodetectors and solar cells containing plasmonic nanoparticles.

One of the complicating factors of the future robotic and human lunar landing missions is the influence of the dust. The upper insulating regolith layer is electrically charged by the solar ultraviolet radiation and the flow of solar wind particles. Resulted electric charge and thus surface potential depend on the lunar local time, latitude and ...

Nonresonant Local Fields Enhance Second-Harmonic Generation from Metal Nanoislands with Dielectric Cover
, , et al., Physical Review Letters 2018 Vol. 120 No. 11 P. 113902
We study second-harmonic generation from gold nanoislands covered with amorphous titanium oxide (TiO2) films. As the TiO2 thickness increases, the plasmon resonance of the nanoislands shifts away from the second-harmonic wavelength of 532 nm, diminishing the resonant enhancement of the process at this wavelength. Nevertheless, the second-harmonic signal is enhanced by up to a factor of ...

The Effect of a Silicon Substrate on the Directivity Pattern of Scattered Radiation of a Gold Nanospheroid and on Near-Field Polarization
, , , Moscow University Physics Bulletin 2017 Vol. 72 No. 6 P. 544-549
We studied the radiation-directivity pattern and the near-field polarization of a spheroidal metallic nanoparticle located over a silicon substrate by interaction with a linearly and circularly polarized field. It is shown that the directivity pattern of the spheroidal particle near the silicon substrate becomes strongly asym- metric and forward scattering is predominant compared with the ...

It is demonstrated that the interaction of a two-level quantum emitter (atom, molecule, etc) with a plasmonic nanoparticle (prolate nanospheroid) in an external laser field features either an essential increase (up to a few orders of magnitude) or reduction (up to a few times) of the total decay rate of the emitter in specific areas around the nanoparticle ...

We elaborate a semi-analytical model for calculation of the bulk internal emission of photoelectrons from metal nanoparticles into a semiconductor matrix. We introduce important effects in the model as the jump of the effective electron mass at the metal–semiconductor interface and cooling of the hot electrons because of electron–electron and electron–nanoparticle surface collisions in the ...

The effect of spherical SiO2 nanoparticles (NPs) embedded in the electrode layer of PEDOT:PSS on the efficiency of organic solar cells (OSC) based on small molecules was studied in detail.

Isotropy parameters of truly linear (LT ) and truly circular (CT ) polarization singularities in a threedimensional monochromatic electromagnetic field are defined. It is demonstrated that these parameters characterize the distribution of polarization ellipses near the singular points in a more detailed way than a topological index. A numerical algorithm which tracks CT and LT ...

To explain recently observed up to 50-fold enhancement of the second harmonic (SH) signal from gold nanoparticles after depositing of a thin dielectric layer, we perform an analytical study of the SH generation by metal core-dielectric shell spherical nanoparticles (NPs). We derive analytical expressions for the SH intensity accounting for electric dipole and quadrupole impacts. ...

Landau damping in the metal nanosphere is considered beyond the quasi-static approximation with the use of exact Mie theory when an incident plane wave can excite not only the dipole mode but also higher order modes. In resonance approximation, when one considers excitation of a single-mode, the analytical formula for the Landau damping coefficient for ...

An analytical study of the second harmonic generation by metal core - dielectric shell spherical nanoparticles was performed. Dependences of the second harmonic intensity on the dielectric shell thickness were calculated.

We study analytically and numerically the distribution of granular temperatures in granular mixtures for different dissipation mechanisms of inelastic inter-particle collisions. Both driven and force-free systems are analyzed. We demonstrate that the simplified model of a constant restitution coefficient fails to predict even qualitatively a granular temperature distribution in a homogeneous cooling state.
