Linear and nonlinear optical properties of metal nanocluster-silica composites formed by sequential implantation of Ag and Cu

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Nanometer dimension metal colloids were formed in silica by sequential implantation of Ag and Cu ions. The Ag and Cu were implanted with relative ratios of Ag to Cu of 9:3, 6:6, and 3:9. The total nominal dose was 12 {times} 10{sup 16} ions/cm{sup 2}. TEM techniques were used to examine colloid size and size distributions. The linear optical response was measured from 200 to 900 nm. The nonlinear optical properties were measured using the z-scan technique at a wavelength of 570 nm. The linear and nonlinear optical properties were found to be dependent upon the relative ratio of sequentially ... continued below

The nonlinear optical properties were measured using the z-scan technique at a wavelength of 570 nm. The linear and nonlinear optical properties were found to be dependent upon the relative ratio of sequentially implanted Ag to Cu. The results are consistent with effective medium theory.
