Experimental TEM image and size histogram analysis of the prepared nanocomposite.
Comparison of the experimental data (solid line) and simulated spectra (dashed line) for different gold relative contents : (a) , (b) , (c) , and (d) . Dielectric constant for the polymer matrix (Ref. 40); the rates of electron collisions for silver and gold are and ; silver and gold bulk plasma frequencies: and (Ref. 35).
Radial distribution of a uniform Cb supersaturated atom solution.
Normalized absorption spectra maxima values vs the time for two different kinetic mechanisms of particle growth: diffusion controlled, when the cluster radius increases as a square root of the reaction time (square-dot-dashed line), and deposition controlled, when the radius increases linearly in (triangle-dot-dashed line). These curves were obtained through the full Mie theory based spectral simulations for the Au nanoparticle ( and ) (Ref. 35). It is assumed that at the formation process stops and the nanoparticle has the same radii for both growth mechanisms.
Absorption peak vs gold relative content inside the nanoparticle calculated by three different methods: (a) direct resonance maximum determination from the simulated absorption spectra (square and line), (b) with the use of Eq. (6) (rhombus and line), and (c) with the use of Eq. (7) (triangle and line).
Experimentally obtained absorption peak position (-axis scale to the right, dashed lines) and calculated by these data gold relative content inside the nanoparticles (-axis scale to the left, solid lines) vs time of the nanoparticle formation process for three different gold relative contents into initial mixture: (1) , (2) , and (3) .
Nanoparticle diameter squared vs reaction time for three different gold relative molar reactive mixture compositions : (1) (square and solid line), (2) (triangle and dashed line), and (3) (rhombus and dotted line). The diameter calculations were based on Eq. (12) and experimental data presented in Fig. 6.
