Abstract

The formation and evolution of metallic-silver nanoparticles capped with silver oxide, in the surface of Ag-doped waveguides produced by ion-exchange, were characterized. The samples were exposed to air atmosphere for periods lasting until 35 days and their aging process was investigated by optical and Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) measurements. The results evidence migration of the Ag+ cations from inside the glass to the surface at room temperature, followed by aggregation of the silver nanoparticles (NPs) and oxidation, creating a nanometric-thick layer over the waveguide surface. This layer was employed for surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) signal and for the fabrication of holographic diffraction gratings (HDG), which are presented as application examples of this material as a new plasmonic template.

(a) Picture of the samples after 35 days of aging and, in comparison, a region cleaned by a soft scrub with distilled water. Also are shown the ΔAbs spectra (bare glass discounted) from Samples 05 (b), 30 (c) 120 (d) for the following cases: waveguide as exchanged (labeled “new”), aged and after it has been cleaned (labeled “clean”).

Dispersion curves: (a) from soda-lime glass, Ag-doped waveguide surface as exchanged and cleaned after 35 days of aging (sample 120); (b) from the layer formed over waveguide surface (10, 20 and 35 days of aging).

AFM images of the Sample 120 (2.0 µm x 2.0 µm): (a) waveguide as exchanged, (b) 35 days of aging and (c) cleaned.

Fig. 4
Fig. 4

(a) SERS signal collected from Raman measurements of Rh6G for bare glass (black line) compared to sample 120 after 35 days of aging (blue line) and after to be heated at 80 °C for 20 min. (red line) (spectra are presented with identical scales, however they are shifted for a better comparison).

Fig. 5
Fig. 5

Setup used to fabricate the holographic diffraction gratings: a NdYAG laser beam passing through a Fresnel bi-prism creating an interference pattern with period of 57µm over the sample surface. As result, a HDG is produced in the layer surface as can be seen in the picture obtained from a Microscope (magnification of 50x). Three Nd:YAG laser pulses of 2.2 mJ were used to heat the sample and transform the silver oxide into metallic silver (clear regions in the picture).
