Microscopic model of IR properties of MgO nanoparticles : size effects

Abstract : We assess the validity of macroscopic electrodynamics at the nanoscale by studying the IR properties of MgO nanoparticles. The absorption spectrum is computed using a numerical solution of Maxwell equations with a local macroscopic dielectric constant. The result is compared with an absorption spectrum obtained using molecular dynamics simulation. Significant differences are reported and we find evidence of the presence of non-local effects. This indicates that a local macroscopic model is not valid at the nanoscale. One of the key issues in nanophotonics is the validity of macroscopic electrodynamics at nanoscale. Most theoretical approaches dealing with light-matter interaction at nanoscale
