Abstract Within the MNPBEM toolbox, we show how to simulate electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS) of plasmonic nanoparticles using a boundary element method approach. The methodology underlying our approach closely follows the concepts developed by García de Abajo and coworkers (Garcia de Abajo, 2010). We introduce two classes eelsret and eelsstat that allow in combination with our recently developed MNPBEM toolbox for a simple, robust, and efficient computation of EEL spectra and maps. The classes... Title of program: MNPBEM toolbox Catalogue Id: AEKJ_v2_0 Nature of problem Simulation of electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS) for plasmonic nanoparticles.
