Abstract

Silver nanoparticles embedded in glass were transformed from spherical to ellipsoidal shapes by irradiation with ultrashort laser pulses; applying strong dc electric field, the particles could also be dissolved leaving nanovoids in the matrix. The key processes at the glass-metal interface leading to these structural changes and the application potential of the techniques are discussed.
