Abstract

We present a microscopic theory of electromagnetic energy transport in nanostructured media based on the Lagrangian formulation of semiclassical electrodynamics. We show the importance of the interplay between transverse and longitudinal local fields in determining the light-matter interaction in nanostructured media. We derive rigorously the coupled-dipole equation of the local fields and apply the theory to analyze energy transport in metal nanoparticle chain waveguide.
