Tommaso Giovannini was an invited speaker and held a presentation with the title Nanoplasmonics of Noble Metal Nanoparticles: A Classical Atomistic Model.
Congrats Tommaso !
Our frequency-dependent fluctuating charges model (wFQ) was presented highlighting the high accuracy of the model in reproducing both theoretical and experimental reference results.
The low cost of the method allows wFQ to explore the plasmonic properties of systems of tenths to hundreds of nanometers and therefore entering the experimentally resolvable scale.
For more about the wFQ model and its applications get a look at the following papers:
