Optical Properties of Oxide Films Dispersed with Nanometal Particles


Solid materials reveal some special behaviors like quantum effects in semiconductors and surface-enhanced effects in metals by decreasing their diameters. In this review, the enhancement of the optical response due to the electric field of the light is reviewed as the recent active field of plasmonics. The production methods of various metal nanoparticles are summarized for the bared state and for the embedded state within the dielectric medium. The features of the optical properties of these nanoparticles are reviewed, and typical formula to reproduce the absorption spectra due to the surface plasmon resonance is summarized. Several applications of these systems are shortly introduced.
