      Abstract:

      Polymer nanocomposites containing noble metal nanoparticles are   promising materials for plasmonic applications. In this paper, we   report on a high-resolution negative-tone nanocomposite resist   based on poly(vinyl alcohol) where silver nanoparticles and   nanopatterns are simultaneously generated by electron-beam   lithography. Our results indicate nanostructures with a   relatively high concentration of nanoparticles and, consequently,   an electromagnetic coupling among the nanoparticles. Therefore,   the patternable nanocomposite described in this work may be a   suitable material for future plasmonic circuitry.
