Nanocrystalline metals having sizes of the order of a few nanometres dispersed in an oxide glass matrix have been discussed in this review. The various physical and chemical routes developed so far for synthesizing such materials have been described. The different physical properties, especially optical, electrical and magnetic behaviour of these nanocomposites have been delineated. The physical mechanisms which give rise to these characteristics are discussed.
