The present article explores an experimental study for nucleation and non-equilibrium growth of silvernanoparticles in a soda-glass matrix. Ion-irradiation induced recoiling of silver atoms with argon ions (at energy 100 keV) facilitates nucleation as well as growth of the silvernanoparticles in the soda-glass matrix. Small growth of the silvernanoparticles in the soda-glass matrix has been experimentally observed after the irradiation with higher fluences of the argon ions. Role of the argon ions for the evolution of the silvernanoparticles in the soda-glass matrix has been elucidated in the present report. With increase of the argon-ion fluences, while slight athermal growth of the silvernanoparticles has been estimated, drastic increase in the optical responses and Rutherford backscattering(RBS) yields of the silvernanoparticles have been observed in the sample with the maximum fluences. Possible correlations of increase of argon-ion fluences and the observed experimental results (optical and RBS, in particular) have been explained in this article. Although it has been demonstrated using the silvermetal film on a soda-glass substrate as a model example, the non-equilibrium approach of nucleation and ion-beam controlled growth of metalnanoparticles in a matrix should be applicable to other immiscible systems as well.
