Localised plasmons in sphere-like fullerenes and nanoparticles with conducting shells: Classical electrodynamic approach

Based on the classical electrodynamic approach, we consider localised plasmons in fullerenes and small particles with metal layers and shells. At low energies of the radiation quantum, models of fullerenes as conducting shells are used taking into account the contribution of only π electrons, and at high energies, of both π and σ electrons. The obtained maxima of the scattering cross sections correspond to the values of 20 and 27 eV that were determined experimentally and in quantum models for the maxima of the photoionisation cross sections of fullerenes C60 and C28, respectively. Approximate analytical results are presented for resonant frequencies, Q factors, radiation patterns, scattering and absorption cross sections for sphere-like particles and fullerenes, as well as integral equations and functionals for dielectric particles with a conducting shell of arbitrary shape. Analysis relies on the use of effective surface conductivity.
