Paper Abstract

This article is presenting the revue of non-linear optical properties investigations of the silicon based nanostructures. The non-linear optical response of the silicon nanocrystal imbedded in to the glycerol matrix, as well as the silicon nanocrystals monolayer on the silver surface and the silicon nanocrystals covered by thin gold film were analyzed. For dressed particles the saturation absorption behavior was observed. The competition of the saturation absorption and third order non-linear optical absorption are realized for the undressed particles and nanocrystals monolayer. The huge nonlinear susceptibility 2 X 10-3 cm/W was observed for silicon nanocrystal deposited on the silver surface. It has been established the effect of nanoparticles interface condition to the optical properties of ones by means of static electric field inside the nanoparticles. The internal static electric field origin and it influence on the linear and non-linear optical properties of the silicon based nanocomposite structures are discussing.
