The Ag/MgF2 and ZnO/MgF2 nanocomposite thin films were prepared using the sol-gel method. The films' optical properties were examined. The Ag/MgF2 films exhibited the absorption at wavelength around 394-419 nm due to SPR. The ZnO/MgF2 films showed intense photoluminescence. The procedure employed showed a potential way to tailor fluoride-based composite materials.
