Optical and structural study of Ag/ZrO2/SiO2 planar waveguide structure: Glass/film/air

The objective of this work is to prepare silver zirconia nanocomposite and to measure the refractive index of the film coated on glass substrate. And also, to check whether is the composite suitable for optical waveguide. There is an increasing commercial demand for nanoparticles due to their wide applicability in various areas such as optics, electronics… (More)
