Description

Modern theoretical fusion research is powered by plasma simulations, inertial confinement fusion usually involves particle-in-cell (PIC) methods containing lasers interacting with charged particles. Here we show a simple kinetic model of resonant gold nanoantennas both in vacuum and a monomer used as fillings in dentistry. The model manages to describe well qualitatively and quantitatively the behaviours of nanoantennas while taking into account additional existing effects, such as electron spillout and eventually the destruction of the nanorods. We will study the nanoantenna's lifetime and absorption properties.
