Abstract: After a brief description of the multiple-scattering method for photonic crystals, we present some results obtained by this method, relating to various types of plasmonic nanostructures in one, two and three dimensions: cavity plasmon waveguides, systems of metallic particles, and arrays of metallic shells. We analyse the optical response of these structures and emphasise some interesting aspects of the underlying physics.

Keywords: plasmon; multiple scattering; transmittance; band structure; waveguide; nanoshells; photonic crystals; nanotechnology; Greece; plasmonic nanostructures.
