Abstract

We present two alternative complete sets of static modes of a homogeneous dielectric sphere, for their use in the resonant-state expansion (RSE), a rigorous perturbative method in electrodynamics. Physically, these modes are needed to correctly describe the static electric field of a charge redistribution within the optical system due to a perturbation of the permittivity. We demonstrate the convergence of the RSE toward the exact result for a perturbation describing a size reduction of the basis sphere. We then revisit the quarter-sphere perturbation treated by Doost et al. [Phys. Rev. A 90, 013834 (2014)], where only a single static mode for each angular momentum was introduced, and show that using a complete set of static modes leads to a small though non-negligible correction of the RSE result, improving the agreement with finite-element simulations. As another example of applying the RSE with a complete set of static modes, we calculate the resonant states of a dielectric cylinder, also comparing the result with a finite-element simulation.
