    Regular, 2D metallodielectric microstructures (see Figure) have been produced in nanocomposite glass by electric-field assisted dissolution of the embedded silver particles. Any pattern of a structured electrode (in this work, macroporous silicon) can be transferred to the nanocomposite. This technique is potentially useful for production of diffractive optical elements, channel waveguides, and submicrometer optical structures suitable for plasmonic applications.
