Hot electron generation through near-field excitation of plasmonic nanoresonators

In this numerical study the hot-electron generation through the emission of a dipole source coupled to a plasmonic nanoresonator is numerically investigated by combining the solution of the time-harmonic Maxwell’s equations with a quantum model for hot electron generation. The results are interpreted with a quasinormal mode expansion of the nanoresonator.
