Abstract. In this paper, optical properties of the system consisting of mesoparticles (small dielectric particles) and nanoparticles (quantum dots) of various shapes have been considered. This system can be characterized by resonant absorption of electromagnetic waves and used for developing the new approach to antiviral therapy.

Keywords: nanoparticle (quantum dot), mesoparticle (small dielectric particle – virus), local field effects, resonant absorption.
