On combining the measured reflectance, transmittance, and thickness of vapor-quenched thin-film systems, we have determined the optical constants and the reflectance of a metastable A1-type Se phase which was found to behave in typically metallic fashion and to become more reflecting the smaller the lattice constant.

  2. The terms "overlay" and "base film" are used to designate, respectively, the upper and lower films of a double-layer coating.
  3. The terms "vapor-quenched," "quench-condensed," and "quench-deposited" are synonyms and indicate that the films have been obtained by vapor-to-solid transformation taking place at temperatures so low that, because of the lack of atomic mobility, metastable phases may be frozen.
