Abstract

The local field approach and kinetic equation method is applied to calculate the surface plasmon radiative damping in a spheroidal metal nanoparticle embedded in any dielectric media. The radiative damping of the surface plasmon resonance as a function of the particle radius, shape, dielectric constant of the surrounding medium, and the light frequency is studied in detail. It is found that the radiative damping grows quadratically with the particle radius and oscillates with altering both the particle size and the dielectric constant of a surrounding medium. Much attention is paid to the electron surface-scattering contribution to the plasmon decay. All calculations of the radiative damping are illustrated by examples on the Au and Na nanoparticles.
