Nanoshells promise to be valuable in a wide range of applications ranging from chemical sensing to cancer treatment. Different applications require different performance from the nanoshell and pose different constraints on them, and thus the nanoshell sensor has to be designed according to the given application. In this regard the resonance wavelength and the Q factor are the mos important properties to consider. In this paper we provide analysis for the nanoshell resonance wavelength and Q factor based on an impedance model of the nanoshell. © 2010 IEEE.
