Formation of silver nanoparticles on the silicate glass surface after ion exchange
It has been experimentally shown that water vapor thermal treatment of silicate glasses with silver ions introduced by ion exchange leads to the formation of a silver nanoparticle layer with a high packing density on the glass surface. The results of studying the morphology of samples by atomic force and electron microscopy and X-ray spectral analysis of the composition of nanoparticles, as well as the optical density and luminescence spectra in different stages of the treatment, are presented. Mechanisms explaining the processes responsible for silver nanoparticle formation upon water vapor thermal treatment on the glass surface after ion exchange are proposed.
