On page 2225 (DOI: 10.1002/jcc.23741), Berco Dan and Chin-Kun Hu perform an analysis of the localized surface plasmon of a gold nano shell using the discrete dipole approximation. A two dimensional projection of the near field intensity is then used at the surface to perform a spectral analysis of the localized surface plasmon by a discrete spherical harmonic transform. The spherical intensity pattern is wrapped on a sphere for illustrative purposes.
