Abstract

A quantum treatment for surface plasmons is very useful. It allows to model effects like stimulated and spontaneous emission. So far, most of the research has been focused on semi-infinite metal boundaries for non-retarded surface plasmons. In this report, we use a second quantization scheme for retarded surface plasmons. The hydrodynamic model is used to model the electron density near metallic boundaries. The focus in this report is on circular cylinder shaped metal inclusions in a conventional dielectric host.
