Comparison between discrete dipole approximation and other modelling methods for the plasmonic response of gold nanospheres
(Springer Science+Business Media, 2014-05)
We investigate the plasmonic response of gold nanospheres calculated using discrete dipole approximation validated against the results from other discretization methods, namely the finite-difference time-domain method and ...
Heat transfer enhancement with actuation of magnetic nanoparticles suspended in a base fluid
In this study, we have experimentally demonstrated that heat transfer can be substantially increased by actuating magnetic nanoparticles inside a nanofluid. In order to materialize this, we have utilized a miniature heat ...
Boiling heat transfer enhancement of magnetically actuated nanofluids
Nanofluids offer a potential breakthrough as next-generation heat transfer fluids since they offer exciting new possibilities to enhance heat transfer performance compared to pure liquids. A major drawback for using ...
Discrete dipole approximation of gold nanospheres on substrates: considerations and comparison with other discretization methods
(AAPP Physical, Mathematical, and Natural Sciences, 2011)
We embark on this preliminary study of the suitability of the discrete dipole approximation with surface interaction (DDA-SI) method to model electric field scattering from noble metal nano-structures on dielectric substrates. ...
Near to far-field thermal emission by nanoparticles on a substrate: Evaluation of effective medium theory
(The Optical Society, 2014)
We study the near to far-field thermal emission of a thin SiC film with/without nanospheres placed upon it. We show that Effective Medium Theorem produces questionable results when approximating emission and absorption ...
