Abstract Within the MNPBEM toolbox, developed for the simulation of plasmonic nanoparticles using a boundary element method approach, we show how to include substrate and layer structure effects. We develop the methodology for solving Maxwell’s equations using scalar and vector potentials within the inhomogeneous dielectric environment of a layer structure. We show that the implementation of our approach allows for fast and efficient simulations of plasmonic nanoparticles situated on top of substrates...
