This letter reports the optical microscopy characterization of gold nanoparticle-doped zeolite L crystals prepared by applying two key techniques: laser ablation and crystallization inclusion. The former allowed the stable formation of Au NPs in the synthesis gel, while the latter permitted the encapsulation of Au NPs exceeding the pore openings of the zeolite crystals, still maintaining the crystal structure as a whole. The microscopy characterization was performed by exploiting single particle light scattering spectroscopy and imaging techniques which offered the Rayleigh scattering images of individual Au particles within the crystals and the scattering spectra ascribable to the surface plasmon resonance band of Au NPs embedded. This is a unique demonstration for the application of laser ablation-induced NPs in solution to practical use for fabricating a nanocomposite material. Furthermore, the present results revealed that the dark field microscopy is capable of visualizing metal nanoparticles as small as 40 nm diameter confined in the light scattering crystalline medium.
