Several noble metal nanoparticles doped sol-gel derived thin coloured films have been synthesized and characterized. These are pure (Ag, An, Cu and Pt), mixed/alloy (Ag-Cu, Au-Cu, Au-Ag and Au-Pt) nanoparticles in SiO(2), An in mixed Sio(2)-TiO(2) and SiO(2)-ZrO(2), An and Ag nanoparticles in inorganic-organic hybrid film matrices etc. This investigation leads to the development of tailor-made coloured coatings by tuning the surface plasmon resonance (SPR) band positions originating from the embedded nanometals by controlling mainly (i) refractive index of the film matrices and (ii) nanoalloy composition. In the later case a new layerby-layer (two-layer) synthetic protocol has been developed to prepare binary nanoalloy particles with controlled atomic ratios.
