Silica-coated metal nanoparticles are increasingly important for their many promising applications. A facile one-step synthesis of noble metal@silica core–shell nanospheres is necessary for their application in laser protection field. In this letter, a one-pot fabrication of silver@silica nanospheres was carried out, and then, silver nanoparticle-doped silicone rubber hybrid materials were prepared. Their optical limiting property to nanosecond laser was investigated and comparable optical limiting property with similar material involving multi-step synthesis of silica-coated metal nanoparticles was found.
