Optical constants are specific properties of condensed matter that allow to describe in a simple way the interaction of light or other electromagnetic radiation with matter. There is always a requirement for optical constants values for estimating colour, reflection, internal total reflection, refraction, scattering, phase shifting, multilayer properties, or thin film thickness.
This book is concerned with the practical determination of optical constants from easily accomplishable reflectance or transmittance measurements with reflectometers or ellipsometers. It provides information on the basics of optical constants and a comprehensive overview on models for optical constants. A brief overview on methods of measurement and evaluation is followed by guidelines to the practical determination of optical constants mainly of thin films on a substrate. The main task is always to find the best suited model for the parametrization of the optical constants.
Dr. Michael Quinten works as Head of Research and Development Sensors at FRT GmbH in Bergisch Gladbach, Germany. Having obtained his diploma degree and Ph. D. in physics (1989) at the University of Saarland, Saarbruecken, Germany, he joined the Technical University RWTH Aachen in 1990 to work as a physics fessor. He then spent four years at several universities in Graz (Austria), Chemnitz, Aachen, Saarbruecken and Bochum (Germany). During his academic career, he authored 50 scientific publications on optical properties of nanoparticles, nanoparticle materials, and aerosols. In 2001, he joined the ETA-Optik GmbH, Germany, where he first worked in research and development of integrated optics components, and later became a product manager in the Colour and Coatings Division. During this period, he became expert in optical layer thickness determination. In 2007, he moved to FRT GmbH where he is responsible for the optical sensor technology division. He is the author of Optical Properties of Nanoparticle Systems: Mie and Beyond, Hardcover, 502 pages, Publisher: Wiley-VCH; 1 edition (March 15, 2011), ISBN10: 9783527410439, ISBN-13: 978-3527410439.
