Hydrodynamic approach for deep-nanometer scale topologies: Analysis of metallic shell
Paper in proceeding, 2021

In order to describe light-matter interaction at deep-nanometer scale, which is governed by nonclassical phenomena, a semiclassical hydrodynamic model with additional boundary conditions has been introduced. This model investigates the motion of the charged gas in metals, characterized by nonlocal material parameters. Based on different treatments of the nonlocality, several hydrodynamic models have been proposed. This work employs the hard wall hydrodynamic model (HW-HDM) and the quantum hydrodynamic model (Q-HDM). The study is performed for the mode structure (natural modes) of a spherical metallic nanoshell, supplemented by the plane wave response of the system. It is shown that the main transverse resonances of HW-HDM and Q-HDM experience nearly identical blueshifts in comparison to the classical resonances. The corresponding longitudinal resonances show noticeable spectrum shifts.
