Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Computation of the scattered electromagnetic fields from and optical forces on metallic nanoparticles depend on their dipole moments. We show that an extensively-used volume correction based on skin depth for calculating dipole moments is inaccurate.
