Abstract

A new exact method of extracting optical constants from reflectance ratios obtained by the Avery technique is presented. The method yields the real and imaginary parts of the complex dielectric constant directly by means of a simple geometric construction. The method is illustrated by a practical case taken from measurements on gray tin.
