Absorption and reflection of electromagnetic radiation by a composite thin film consisting of a transparent dielectric matrix with inclusions of metal nanoparticles of radius much less than the wavelength were theoretically investigated based on the Maxwell-Garnett model. The absorption, reflection, and transmission of optical radiation in such a dielectric composite film were analyzed using effective optical parameters for the refractive index and absorption coefficient that depended on the nanoparticle size.
