The infrared optical constants of a few different powders of chromites, XCr2O4 (where X is Fe, Ni, Mg, Zn, or Cu), have been determined by Kramers–Kronig analysis of their infrared transmission and reflection spectra. The knowledge of these constants allows one to predict the different thin-layer infrared reflection spectra and to compare them, when it is possible, with the reflection spectra calculated with n and k obtained by the use of the classical oscillator method.
