Infrared optical constants collected from the literature are tabulated for Mo and V. New data are presented for Cu, Fe, and Ni. Drude model parameters ωτ and ωp are given for the fourteen metals Al, Co, Cu, Au, Fe, Pb, Mo, Ni, Pd, Pt, Ag, Ti, V, and W. The Drude model parameters for Cu are revised from our earlier tabulation due to the availability of additional data. Refinements in our fitting technique have resulted in only slight changes in the Drude model parameters for Al, Au, Ag, and W. The Drude model parameters for Pb correct a numerical error in our earlier tabulation. For all fourteen metals, the optical resistivity has been calculated from the Drude model parameters ωτ and ωp and compared to handbook values for the dc resistivity.
