Paper Abstract

In the present work the mechanisms of the optical radiation action on the Na metal island films, representing ensemble of nanoparticles deposited on a dielectric substrate and interacting with each other due to the electron transport between the islands, were investigated. The major effect of optical radiation action on the film conductivity was found to be caused by photons with the energies above the threshold of the photoeffect in Na. The appreciable action of illumination with the wavelengths greater than the photoelectric threshold was also detected and interpreted.
