Limiting amplitude principle and resonances in plasmonic structures with corners: numerical investigation

Abstract

The limiting amplitude principle states that the response of a scatterer to a harmonic light excitation is asymptotically harmonic with the same pulsation. Depending on the geometry and nature of the scatterer, there might or might not be an established theoretical proof validating this principle. In this paper, we investigate a case where the theory is missing: we consider a two-dimensional dispersive Drude structure with corners. In the non lossy case, it is well known that looking for harmonic solutions leads to an ill-posed problem for a specific range of critical pulsations, characterized by the metal’s properties and the aperture of the corners. Ill-posedness is then due to highly oscillatory resonances at the corners called black-hole waves. However, a time-domain formulation with a harmonic excitation is always mathematically valid. Based on this observation, we conjecture that the limiting amplitude principle might not hold for all pulsations. Using a time-domain setting, we propose a systematic numerical approach that allows to give numerical evidences of the latter conjecture, and find clear signature of the critical pulsa- tions. Furthermore, we connect our results to the underlying physical plasmonic resonances that occur in the lossy physical metallic case.
