Abstract

Infrared optical constants collected from the literature are tabulated. The data for the noble metals and Al, Pb, and W can be reasonably fit using the Drude model. It is shown that 1 ( ω ) = 2 ( ω ) ω p 2 / ( 2 ω τ 2 ) at the damping frequency ω = ωτ. Also −1(ωτ) ≃ −(½) 1(0), where the plasma frequency is ωp.

  6. For a single carrier type (electrons) the plasma frequency ωp is as given in Eq. (5) where the dielectric constant is ∊∞ (the contribution from the core electrons at high frequencies). Often m* = m and ∊∞ = 1 are assumed. For discussion see H. Ehrenreich, M. H. Cohen, Phys. Rev. 115, 786 (1959); the last paragraph on p. 790 is most relevant. [CrossRef]
