In this paper the scattering spectrum of evanescent light scattering from a nanoshell particle deposited on a plane surface is investigated. We analyze the spectrum dependence of a nanoshell on the core materials and on the polarization of an external excitation. For this analysis the Discrete Sources Method (DSM) is chosen. Based on its rigorous theoretical model, DSM allows to account for all features of the scattering problem such as the medium with frequency dispersion, the presence of the interface, the objective aperture and its location and the core–shell asphericity. Computer simulated results are presented in the final part of the paper.
