Abstract
We describe our recent studies of metal-insulator nanocluster composites made by ion implantation in such substrates as glass and sapphire. The metal clusters have diameters ranging from 3 to 30 nm. The composites exhibit an electronic nonlinear optical response which is fast on the picosecond time scale. In addition to their evident possibilities for technological application, these materials also offer an unprecedented way of studying unusual properties of composite materials, such as the quantum confinement of conduction-band electrons and the transverse relaxation time T2 as a function of cluster size.
