CMX is a research group aimed at the development and analysis of novel algorithmic ideas underlying emerging applications in the physical, biological, social and information sciences.  We are distinguished by a shared value system built on the development of foundational mathematical understanding, and the deployment of this understanding to impact on emerging key scientific and technological challenges.

Accurate evaluation of near-fields in plasmonic structures ▦

     Plasmonic structures are commonly made of dielectrics and metals. At optical frequencies metals exhibit unusual electromagnetic properties like a dielectric permittivity with a negative real part whereas dielectrics have a positive one. This configuration allows the propagation of electromagnetic surface waves strongly oscillating at the metal-dielectric interface, and hyper-oscillating if the interface presents corners. Standard numerical methods to study surface plasmons excitation do not always take into account the multiple scales inherent in electromagnetic problems which may lead to inaccurate predictions. In this presentation we present some techniques (using Finite Element method, or Boundary Integral Equation methods) to accurately compute and efficiently take into account the multiple scales of 2D light scattering problems in plasmonic structures.
