Paper Abstract

In the paper comparative evaluation of the photon mean free path in the system of metal nanoparticles and dielectric matrix is performed by means of numerical simulations. As a material of nanoparticles both metals (Ag, Cu) in which the frequency of plasmon resonance falls in the range under study and metals (Al, Ni) in which the plasmon resonance frequency is far from the investigated range have been used. The research has shown that for the studied metals the media based on Al nanoparticles satisfy best the Ioffe-Regel criterion for photons of visible wavelength range.
