FIG. 3.

The absorption enhancement as a function of wavelength for silver nanoparticles of radius 20 nm in different hosting media.

Image of FIG. 4.
FIG. 4.

The absorption enhancement as function of wavelength for different radius of silver nanoparticles embedded in P3HT and PCBM blend (1:4). The enhancement decreases monotonically as particle size increases.

Image of FIG. 5.
FIG. 5.

The absorption enhancement for radius-20 nm silver nanoparticle embedded in P3HT/PCBM (1:4) blend as a function of ratio R/a, where R is the distance from the nanoparticle center and a is the radius of nanoparticles, at 500 and 600 nm incident light. The x-axis is in log scale. The location of the enhancement peak does not change with irradiation wavelength.

Image of FIG. 6.
FIG. 6.

The enhancement overlap of two neighboring nanoparticles. The radius of the silver nanoparticle is 20 nm, under illumination of 600 nm. P3HT and PCBM blend (1:4) is the hosting medium. The center of particle 1 is located at R/a = 0 and the center of particle 2 is at R/a = 6 which are not shown on the x-axis.
