This paper describes a study of the absorptance of thin films with the aim of
elucidating the region of validity for a direct relationship between the
absorptance and the absorption coefficient. The calculations are performed for
an unsupported film, a film on a transparent or metallic substrate, and for the
absorptance as a function of polarization.
