Silver nanoclusters embedded in glass matrices have been obtained by the combined use of ion exchange and subsequent ion implantation. XRD and UV-visible spectro-photometric analysis have con"rmed the formation of Ag nano-clusters in the ion-irradiated samples. Temperature-dependent resistivity measurements of the irradiated samples have been found to follow (1)Jexp (1 /1) in the temperature range of 80}280 K. The observed behaviour of (1) is consistent with charge transport due to hopping… CONTINUE READING
