Abstract: Au/SiO2 nano-composite multilayer thin films with different thickness were prepared on a quartz substrate by magnetron plasma sputtering. The microstructure, morphology and optical properties of the films were investigated by using TEM and optical absorption spectra. [Au/SiO2]×5 and [Au/SiO2] × 11 multilayer thin films have well-defined interface. The thickness of the multilayer was 60nm and 130 nm for the thin films with 5 and 11 layers, respectively. The optical absorption peaks due to the surface plasma resonance appeared at a wavelength of 560 nm for the both [Au/SiO2]×5 and [Au/SiO2]×11 thin films. The intensity of the absorption peak increased with increasing numbers of deposition layers. The optical absorption spectra of Au/SiO2 multilayer thin films are well agreement with the theoretical optical absorption spectra calculated from rewritten Maxwell–Garnett effective medium theory.

Abstract: Au/SiO2 nano-composite thin films with 3 to 65 vol% Au content were prepared by induction-coil-coupled plasma sputtering. Au particles dispersed in the SiO2 matrix can be prepared by controlling the deposition time of one Au layer and the thickness of the one SiO2 layer. The Au nano-particle dispersed Au/SiO2 multilayer with an uniform nano-layered microstructure showed the absorption peak at the wavelength of 560 nm. The heat-treated Au/SiO2 films containing 3 to 65 vol% Au showed absorption peaks at the wavelength of 540 to 560 nm, while no absorption peak was observed in the as-deposited multilayers containing more than 12 vol% Au.
