Abstract

The complex refractive index dispersion of polycarbonate was identified from reflectance and transmittance measurements across the spectral range of 0.2–3 μm. Two identification methods were investigated. A numerical identification method that allows rigorous consideration of different experimental configurations is described. The results obtained are compared with values calculated with an analytical method assuming normal incidence.
