In phase: Silver nanoparticles incorporated into poly(vinylidene fluoride) induce the nucleation of the electroactive γ phase of the polymer. Surface plasmon resonance absorption in the composites increases with the concentration and size of the nanoparticles. This behavior is correlated to an electrical response and is related to the extra bands and electrons provided by the nanoparticles in the large energy band gap of the polymer.
