A procedure to compute intensity distributions generated by the Mie scattering from a single coated sphere is described, and applied to a nanoshell and a microshell. The obtained information on the near-field intensity and the absorbed energy density is shown to be useful in predicting optical properties of the core-shell structure for applications. 


Key words: Nanoparticles, Mie theory, near-field effects, absorbed energy density.
