Rapid modeling of far-field Fano resonance supported by lattices of complex nanostructures is possible with the coupled dipole approximation (CDA) using point, dipole polarizability extrapolated from a higher order discrete dipole approximation (DDA). Fano resonance in nanostructured metamaterials has been evaluated with CDA for spheroids, for which an analytical form of particle polarizability exists. For complex structures with non-analytic polarizability, such as rings, higher order electrodynamic solutions must be employed at the cost of computation time. Point polarizability is determined from the DDA by summing individual polarizable volume elements from the modeled structure. Extraction of single nanoring polarizability from DDA permitted CDA analysis of nanoring lattices with a 40,000-fold reduction in computational time over 1000 wavelengths. Maxima and minima of predicted Fano resonance energies were within 1% of full volume elements using the DDA. This modeling technique is amenable to other complex nanostructures which exhibit primarily dipolar and/or quadrupolar resonance behavior. Rapid analysis of coupling between plasmons and photon diffraction modes in lattices of nanostructures supports design of plasmonic enhancements in sustainable energy and biomedical devices.
