The reflection coefficients for perpendicular and parallel polarization of a germanium-mercury interface have been measured as a function of angle of incidence at a wavelength of three microns. There is in general good agreement with theory although at the principal angle, the parallel component of polarization is absorbed more strongly than indicated by theory.
