Abstract

We present results for linear and nonlinear light scattering experiments from percolative silver nanoshells on dielectric silica cores. Using ultrashort pulsed laser illumination we observe strong nonlinear optical (NLO) responses from single metallodielectric core-shell (MDSC) spheres and disordered MDSC sphere aggregates. Finally, combining scaling theory with core-shell Mie scattering formalism we obtain a new model for the observed linear extinction signals.
