The creation of composite coatings with assigned optical properties is an important problem of modern science and technology. We have considered the metal-polymer nanocomposites based on poly(p-xylylene), with various concentrations of plasmon components—silver nanoparticles. We have carried out the optical measurements of the reflection, transmission, scattering and absorption coefficients for the manufactured films. We have retrieved the effective optical parameters of the composite coatings. The theoretical estimations based on the scattering and absorption data show that the scattering effectively occurs on the clusters of metal nanoparticles. This significantly influences the optical properties of the composite coating. View Full-Text
