    Ag/C nanocomposite thin films with different Ag/C molar ratios have been prepared using ArF excimerlaser-induced ablation process and silver target under n-Hexane atmosphere. The morphology, crystalstructure and composition of as-deposited Ag/C nanocomposite thin films were investigated with highresolution electronic microscopic techniques (including scanning electron microscopy and transmissionelectron microscopy) and energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, respectively. Laser Raman spectroscopyand Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy techniques were also applied to characterize the final car-bonaceous products generated from n-Hexane under laser ablation process. The optical emission of theplume caused by the interaction between excimer laser and silver target in the presence of n-Hexanewas studied to understand the possible reaction process. The UV–vis absorption of as-deposited Ag/Cthin films, which is attributed to the surface plasmonic excitation, was also investigated in the presentwork.
