Abstract
Synthesis of transparent conductive coatings is a promising direction of modern nanotechnological research. Thin nanostructured noble-metallic films demonstrate nonlinear optical effects in visible spectral range because of their plasmonic properties [1]. In addition, optical characteristics of these thin films strongly depend on the period of the formed surface structures [2]. If the distance between deposited particles almost equals their sizes, the optical properties of the randomly deposited structures may considerably differ from these for periodical structures [3]. In this work, we have studied the degree of the morphology influence (particle diameter in the colloid, the distance between the deposited particles, the number of layers etc.) on the optical and electrical properties of the deposited thin film of bimetallic gold and silver clusters. In this work we used CW-laser with moderate intensity in liquid (water or ethanol) for synthesis nanoparticles of noble metals. For the formation of quasi-periodically arranged clusters, particle deposition from the colloidal systems is used. The optical properties of the deposited bimetallic films are shown to change as a function of composition and geometry in agreement with the modeling of the optical properties.
