Shape Resonances of the Transverse Magnetic Mode in a Spherically Stratified Medium

Umaporn Nuntaplook, John A. Adam
Abstract—Although morphology-dependent resonances (MDRs) have been studied for decades, it is interesting to note that TM resonances have not been as widely investigated as those of the TE mode. Nevertheless, the formers are also worthy of additional study. Even though the TE and TM mode resonances can be generated using the same technique, their properties (such as the additional sharp peak in the source function at the particle surface) are quite distinct. We present the derivation of the resonance formulations for TM mode for both increasing and decreasing piecewise-constant refractive index profiles in a two-layer model of a sphere embedded in a uniform medium of different refractive index. Numerical and graphical results are also provided.

Index Terms—Electromagnetic, resonance, transverse magnetic, stratified medium.
