Abstract

The analytic solution of the problem of spontaneous decay of an atom near a cluster of two perfectly conducting nanospheres is found. It is shown that spontaneous decay rates can considerably decrease or increase depending on the system geometry. In particular, within the framework of our model, the decay rate of an atom located between closely spaced spheres and having the transition dipole moment directed along the symmetry axis can be arbitrarily high.
