We investigate the resonant gain response in doped multishell hybrid nanoparticles made of concentric and alternated doped dielectric and metal shells. In particular, we compare the enhanced extinction properties calculated in a quasi-static approximation with accurate light scattering calculations in the T-matrix formalism. We show that, even for small hybrid particles, a difference in the calculated optoplasmonic mode yields a dramatic change in the resonant coupling with the doped molecular system. Thus, although a simple dipole approach gives a fast qualitative view of the multishell gain-assisted response, a complete light scattering framework is crucial for a quantitative investigation of these hybrid nanosystems.

Abstract

We investigate the resonant gain response in doped multishell hybrid nanoparticles made of concentric and alternated doped dielectric and metal shells. In particular, we compare the enhanced extinction properties calculated in a quasi-static approximation with accurate light scattering calculations in the T-matrix formalism. We show that, even for small hybrid particles, a difference in the calculated optoplasmonic mode yields a dramatic change in the resonant coupling with the doped molecular system. Thus, although a simple dipole approach gives a fast qualitative view of the multishell gain-assisted response, a complete light scattering framework is crucial for a quantitative investigation of these hybrid nanosystems.
