Abstract

Single δ-layers of dispersed silver (Ag) nanoparticles are obtained by low-energy ion beam implantation in a silica thin film. TEM microscopy reveals that the obtained Ag particles are spherical, crystalline, and the particles layer is located at only few nanometers below the free silica surface. We use reflectivity measurements to probe the optical/plasmonic response of the fabricated structures and exploit plasmon resonance and optical interference effects in the silica film to record the Raman scattering by quadrupolar vibrations of the spherical particles.
