We report the method of incorporation of preformed gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) into the acrylic polymer (AP) matrices and optical, TEM characterization of AuNP/AP bulk and film composite. It was shown that incorporation of dodecanethiol-covered AuNP can be enhanced in the presence of SiO2 nanoparticles, enabling at the same time a wider range of tailoring of composite properties for optical processing.
