Abstract

The composition, the structure and the optical properties of mesostructured hybrid silica films elaborated by sol-gel routine are studied versus the temperature of the post treatment by comparing ellipsometric measurements, atomic force microscopy and electronic microscopy characterizations, X-ray diffraction and thermal analysis. This paper shows that the refractive index variation is a combination between the structure contraction, the solvent evaporation, the silica wall condensation and the pyrolysis of the copolymer. We also investigate the optical properties of thermally grown silver nanoparticles in the mesotructured films and we demonstrate that these properties depend on the optical properties of the host matrix and on the silver concentration profile in the film.
