Silver nanoparticles have been deposited on glass and polyethylene substrate by Chemical Bath Deposition (CBD) technique and Chemical rolling method. A comparative study has shown that Chemical bath technique is superior compared to rolling technique for uniform deposition of silver nanoparticles on glass substrate. Crystallography investigation of these materials is done by X-ray diffraction (XRD) which reveals that average grain size is in nano region. Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) is used for topography study of these prepared nanostructures. Optical properties of the synthesized materials are studied by UV-VIS in detail to check their potential for next era industrial revolution.
