摘要：We report on the embedded silver (Ag) nanoparticles fabricated by Ag+ ion implantation into the Bi4Ge3O12 (BGO) crystal. Localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) phenomenon has been observed by linear optical absorption spectrum, which is accordance with the expectation based on Mie theory calculation. Further proofs are given by SRIM, TEM and SAED analysis, which explain the slight difference between experiment and calculation. Based on the z-scan system, it is found that the nonlinear optical response is converted from two-photon absorption to three-photon absorption under the 515 nm femtosecond pulse excitation within the LSPR band. The nonlinear absorption coefficient is measured to be similar to 3.1 x 10(-9) cm/W (two-photon absorption coefficient) and similar to 8.9 x 10(-14)cm(3)/W-2 (three-photon absorption coefficient) for pure BGO crystal and the sample embedded with Ag nanoparticles (Ag: BGO), respectively. Finally, we have proposed a model to explain the asymmetric nonlinear transmittance, which is in good agreement with the experimental results.
