dc.description.abstractThe emergence of Localized Surface Plasmon Resonance (LSPR) in nanocomposite films consisting of a hydrogen-free amorphous Carbon (a-C) matrix and Ag is considered theoretically and experimentally. While in theory it could be manifested for highly tetrahedral (>90% sp3) matrices, Auger electron spectroscopy and neutron reflectivity have shown that the incorporation of Ag into the a-C matrix induces severe graphitization that eliminates the LSPR; nonetheless, the dielectric damping of graphitized a-C, in combination with the π-π* electronic transitions of carbon and the defect states introduced by Ag, cumulatively result in a strong broadband optical absorption in the near infrared, visible and UVA/UVB spectral ranges, revealed by optical reflectivity spectra, that coincides with the solar emission spectrum. The incorporation of Ag into a-C at room temperature thus proves to be an energy-efficient pathway for the controlled graphitization and the tailored optical absorption of novel nanocomposite films for solar photothermal applications.en_US
