Tailoring the refractive indices of thin film polymer metallic nanoparticle nanocomposites.

Abstract

We demonstrate how to tailor the spatial distribution of gold nanoparticles (Au-NPs) of different sizes within polystyrene (PS) thin, supported, film hosts, thereby enabling the connection between the spatial distribution of Au-NPs within the polymer film and the optical properties to be determined. The real, n, and imaginary parts, k, of the complex… (More)
