Abstract

A scheme based on conjugate Fourier series is proposed for the determination of the dissipative mode of an optical constant from the corresponding dispersive mode, and vice versa. The connection between the conjugate Fourier series and Fourier integral method is discussed. The advantages of the method in relation to the Kramers-Kronig approach are outlined.
