Metal–Molecule Electrodynamic Coupling

ByS. Corni

In this chapter, an introduction to the problem of studying the

electromagnetically mediated coupling between a molecule and

a metal nanoparticle is given. Various models proposed in the

literature for this problem are presented, and the most common

relations needed to obtain molecular photophysical quantities from

the solution of proper electrodynamics problems are discussed.
