Nanoparticules métalliques en matrices vitreuses pour l’amplification Raman

Abstract : Signals in optical fibers used for the transfer of information are attenuated due to impurities, scattering, absorption… To compensate for these losses, several techniques were developed like Erbium Doped Fiber Amplifier (EDFA). An alternative to rare earth doped fiber amplifier is Raman Amplification, which results from stimulated Raman scattering. Noble metal nanoparticles have optical properties induced by the collective oscillation of their conduction electrons when they interact with an electromagnetic wave. These particles strongly absorb the electromagnetic field at a frequency called surface Plasmon resonance frequency. This work is mainly based on effects leading to the improvement of the Raman Amplification. The ANR project Fenoptic (2010-2012), gathering Draka and several French laboratories (ICB (Dijon), CMCP (Paris), LPCML (Lyon)) is interested in the integration of noble metal nanoparticles in optical fibers using properties of the surface Plasmon resonance to improve the efficiency of optical amplifiers. In this work, different kinds of samples (suspensions, layers, optical fiber performs) with metal nanoparticles were studied. The experiments were based on the characterization (form and position of the Plasmon band) of noble metal nanoparticles in amorphous matrix and Raman spectroscopy was used to study the Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS) effect. For the first time, we found the Raman signal exaltation of an amorphous matrix.
