  • Patent number: 9450154
    Abstract: A method for fabricating a microstructure to generate surface plasmon waves comprises steps of: preparing a substrate, and using a carrier material to carry a plurality of metallic nanoparticles and letting the metallic nanoparticles undertake self-assembly to form a microstructure on the substrate, wherein the metallic nanoparticles are separated from each other or partially agglomerated to allow the microstructure to be formed with a discontinuous surface. The present invention fabricates the microstructure having the discontinuous surface by a self-assembly method to generate the surface plasmon waves, thus exempts from using the expensive chemical vapor deposition (CVD) technology and is able to reduce the time and cost of fabrication. The present invention also breaks the structural limitation on generation of surface plasmon waves to enhance the effect of generating the surface plasmon waves.

    Abstract: A transparent electric-arc resistant composition is produced by preparing crystalline tungsten bronze nanoparticles and homogenously dispersing the nanoparticles in a transparent plastic matrix. The crystalline tungsten bronze nanoparticles are prepared by homogeneously mixing an aqueous solution of soluble tungsten and cesium salts and then drying the solution. The dried solution is then heated in a reducing gas or inert gas atmosphere to form crystalline tungsten bronze nanoparticles. Thereafter, a dispersion agent is added and the nanoparticles are dispersed in a liquid solvent medium by wet milling to form a dispersion mixture. The dispersion mixture is then mixed with polymer pellets to form a polymer mixture, and the polymer mixture is then extruded to yield polymer pellets containing highly homogeneously dispersed inorganic nanoparticles. During or after dispersion, additional particles, dyes, heat stabilizers or UV absorbers, may be added. A lens or shield is then molded from the polymer pellets.
