Cluster effects on optical properties of glass-metal nanocomposites
Optical absorption characteristics in a glass-metal nanocomposite system involving bismuth metal have been analysed using effective medium theories with a model incorporating single strand chains andfcc clusters of metallic bismuth particles. The computed values show fair agreement with experimental data.
