In recent years, the fabrication, structural modification and characterisation of nanostructured materials have gained a great deal of attention due to their distinctive properties and potential use in technological applications. Glass containing silver (Ag) nanoparticles (NP), or Metal-Glass Nanocomposite (MGN), is routinely used as high-contrast optical polarisers [1], and has been recently shown as a promising medium for high-volume optical storage of information [2]. Strong second and third harmonic generation has been demonstrated when the MGN containing mechanically reshaped NPs was subjected to fs pulse excitation [3], thus showing potential as an effective nonlinear optical medium for photonics nanodevice applications.
