The nonequilibrium carrier dynamics in spherical silver nanoparticles embedded in aluminophosphate glass system was explored by femtosecond optical pump-probe technique. Photoluminescence and absorption spectroscopy were used for characterization of linear optical properties and particle size estimation. The two temperature model is employed to study the hot electron subsystem and evolution of electronic and lattice temperatures. The electron scattering dynamics on the 10-13-10-12 sec scale and two-photon absorption process are discussed. The laser-induced coherent vibrations of silver nanoparticles were observed in transient transmission experiments for relatively large particles with radii ~35 nm.
