Gold nanoparticle adsorbed onto Microring resonator

      Hello, I am trying to simulate the wavelength shift that results from the adsorption of gold nanoparticles onto the ring waveguide.

      This is my simulation region.

      And this paper I am trying to replicate suggests a left shift of the resonant wavelength, but I keep getting a right shift. 

      Can someone please help me locate what I am doing wrong?

      This is what I get:

      Parameters: ring: inner radius = 2.95um, outer radius = 3.5um, height = 250nm

      bus waveguide: width = 500nm, height = 250nm

      Gold nanoparticle: shape spherical, diameter = 80nm

      Please help me out, I tried a lot.

      From your results, it is obvious that the simulation time is too short: please use 100 times more than the current time. you may also need to use finer mesh at the coupling regions and the nano particle with override meshes.

      Please refer this post for more information:
