We study synthesis and SERS activity of glass-embedded ion-exchanged silver nanoparticles formed by two different methods. Silver-sodium ion-exchange process with heat treatment was utilized on commercial microscope slides, while masked ion-exchange technique was performed on glass Corning 0211. The distribution of particles was studied by absorption spectroscopy and atomic force microscopy. After etching the glass surface to expose the particles, SERS performance of these particles was investigated with micro-Raman spectroscopy using Rhodamine 6G as the analyte.
