Mie Plasmons: Modes Volumes, Quality Factors, and Coupling Strengths (Purcell Factor) to a Dipolar Emitter

Figure 6

Coupling efficiency into the dipolar ( ), quadrupolar ( ) and hexapolar ( ) mode of a silver sphere in PMMA, calculated using exact Mie expansion. The emitter wavelength is assumed to match the considered mode. Therefore , and are calculated at (dipolar resonance), (quadrupolar resonance), and (hexapolar resonance), respectively.
