  N.I. Grigorchuk (Bogolyubov Institute for Theoretical Physics, National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, 14-b Metrologichna St., 03680 Kyiv, Ukraine)

The sensitivity of the wavelength position of the surface plasmon resonances in a prolate and oblate fine metal particles to the refractive index of an embedding solution, a particle shape, and electron temperature is studied theoretically in the framework of different analytical methods. All calculations are illustrated on the single potassium nanoparticle as an example.

Key words: sensitivity, surface plasmon resonance, fine metal particles
