Abstract : A subwavelength metallic particle supports localized surface plasmons for some negative permittivity values, which are eigenvalues of the self-adjoint quasi-static plasmonic eigenvalue problem (PEP). This work investigates the existence of complex plasmonic resonances for a 2D particle whose boundary is smooth except for one straight corner. These resonances are defined using the multivalued nature of some solutions of the corner dispersion relations and they are shown to be eigenvalues of a PEP that is complex-scaled at the corner, the finite element discretization of which yields a linear generalized eigenvalue problem. Numerical results show that the complex scaling deforms the essential spectrum (associated with the corner) so as to unveil both embedded plasmonic eigenvalues and complex plasmonic resonances. The later are analogous to complex scattering resonances with the local behavior at the corner playing the role of the behavior at infinity. These results corroborate the study of Li and Shipman (J. Integral Equ. Appl. 31(4), 2019), which proved the existence of embedded plasmonic eigenvalues and discussed the construction of particles that exhibit complex plasmonic resonances.
