Abstract

An adapted method of optimization of coated metallic nanoparticles is introduced to perform the optimal choice of material and sizes for better scattering or absorption efficiency. This design of nanoshells, involving plasmon resonance, is achieved to maximize the efficiency factors. The presented method is turned to tune the efficiency of nanoshells for biomedical applications and an increasing of the efficiency factors by 1 or 2 orders of magnitude is predicted with realistic materials.
