General approach to reliable characterization of thin metal films.
Applied Optics, 50
Optical constants of thin metal films are strongly dependent on deposition conditions, growth mode, and thickness. We propose a universal characterization approach that allows reliable determination of thin metal film optical constants as functions of wavelength and thickness. We apply this approach to determination of refractive index dispersion of silver island films embedded between silica layers.
