Abstract

The formation kinetics of an island silver film on a dielectric substrate and changes in the film morphology during heating have been investigated using optical methods. The results obtained are interpreted within a model relating the film optical properties with the shape and size of the nanoparticles forming this film. The proposed interpretation is confirmed by electron microscopy data.
