Coupling between multipolar modes of different orders has not been investigated in depth, despite its fundamental and practical relevance in the context of optical metamaterials and metasurfaces. Here, we use an electromagnetic multipole expansion of both the scattered fields and the oscillating electric currents to reveal the multipolar excitations in a nanoparticle positioned close to another nanoparticle. The considered single-particle multipoles radically differ from multipoles excited in a pair of nanoparticles. Using the expansion, we reveal the multipole character of the electric currents and the contributions of the multipole moments to the scattering cross section of each particle, including the effect of their interaction. We find that light scattered by the particles plays the role of an inhomogeneous incident field for each of the particles, leading to hybridization of the originally independent orthogonal multipole resonances. For an incident plane wave polarized along the nanoparticle pair, the hybridization of the dipole and quadrupole resonances gives rise to a significant narrowband resonance in the spectrum of the dipole scattering, which can be of interest for various applications, e.g. in surface-enhanced fluorescence and Raman spectroscopy. In general, this work shows that the multipole-multipole interaction between nanoparticles must be treated by taking into account also such hybridized multipole resonances.
