Silver nanoparticles have received considerable attention due to their attractive physical and chemical properties. The surface plasmon resonance and large effective scattering cross section of individual silver nanoparticles make them ideal candidates for molecular labeling, where phenomena such as surface enhance Raman scattering (SERS) can be exploited. In addition, silver nanoparticles have recently been shown to be a promising antimicrobial material. In the present research silver colloid was produced by sodium citrate reduction. The colloidal silver was incorporated by dip-coating to the polymer substrate. X-Ray Fluorescence Spectroscopy (XRF), Atomic force microscopy (AFM), ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy (UV-VIS ) and SERS indicate that the produced structures include metallic crystalline silver nanoparticles. The surface plasmon resonance peak in absorption spectra of silver particles showed an absorption maximum at 420-500 nm. The silver - polymer nanocomposites structures with selective light properties as a result of plasmon resonance shifting in the UV-VIS wavelength region were produced.
