Electromagnetic field amplitude distribution for a transverse electromagnetic wave at wavelength incident on a structure consisting of a -diameter Au sphere atop ITO and . Regions of high field amplitude are evident to the left of the particle (arising from the particle surface plasmon polariton resonance) and below the particle (arising from forward scattering of the incident wave).
