A direct manifestation of electron energy quantization in metal nanoparticles is observed in two-photon excited luminescence. Experiments reveal the discrete spectra in broadband anti-Stokes photoluminescence from aggregates of silver colloid particles. A theory based on a spherical quantum-well model for metal nanoparticles is in good agreement with experimental observations.
