Abstract

Optical functions of cobalt phthalocyanine, nickel phthalocyanine (NiPc), and iron phthalocyanine (FePc) have been determined by use of spectroscopic ellipsometry in the spectral range 1.55–4.1 eV (300–800 nm). The samples were prepared by evaporation onto glass and silicon substrates. The optical functions were determined by point-to-point fit. Absorption spectra were also measured. The index-of-refraction data for NiPc and FePc are reported for the first time to our knowledge. Good agreement with the experimental spectra was obtained for all three materials.
