This week’s image is taken from Jian Ye et al 2016 J. Phys. D: Appl. Phys. 49 205106. The authors from Shanghai Jiao Tong University and Jiangnan University have theoretically investigated the origin and tunability of magnetic resonances in gold semishells composed of two nanocups with face-to-face geometry. Nanoshells have significant potential for in vivo biomedical imaging, drug delivery, and localized cancer thermotherapy applications.
The image shows the charge distributions on the surface of the nanocups, calculated by the finite element method and plotted in several orientations.
