One of the main drawbacks of plasmonic nanostructures, restricting their potential application, is the intrinsic (ohmic) losses caused by the interaction of the free electrons of the metal with thermostat (irreversible losses) and radiative losses. The more localized light is to the metal surface, the more concentrated the plasmonic field fraction is inside the metal resulting in the appearance of higher dissipative losses (Maier in Opt Express 14:1957, 2006, 1).
