The evaluation of refractive index from interference fringe transmission spectra by Solomon Zwerdling Download PDF EPUB FB2

Optical transmission spectroscopy is often used.6 In general, the measured characteristics by these methods are hard to analyze accurately without removal of the interference fringes caused by multireflection interference of thin films.

These interference fringes significantly distort the optical spectra at lower avalues. No we have deposited ZnO films and got ES data from where we calculate the refractive index, we would like to discuss transmission of the same ZnO film without taking transmission spectra.

The title of the paper is: Optical interference method for the approximate determination of refractive index and thickness of a transparent layer Cite 15th Dec, Simple equations are given for determining both refractive index and film thickness from a measurement of interference fringe separation where the question of phase change and the order of the fringes can be disregarded.

The equations are quite general, since they apply to fringe maxima or minima for either transmission or reflection and can be used for free-standing films or films on. Figure 3.

One outcome of the wave properties of light is that waves exhibit interference effects. Light waves that are in phase with each other undergo constructive interference, and their amplitudes are additive. Well-known model and relevant parameters are shown in the inset of Fig.

A simplified theoretical model has been proposed to predict optical parameters such as thickness, thickness irregularity, refractive index, and extinction coefficient from transmission spectra. The proposed formula has been solved for thickness and thickness irregularity in the transparent region, and then the refractive index is calculated for the entire spectral region by use of the.

Since the index of the asymmetric filter is dominated by the high index material, the shift on angle is considerably less.” Because the shift is inversely proportional to the effective average refractive index, the higher this is, the better, because the shift with angle will be smaller (but it does not disappear).

case measuring the refractive index of semiconductor wafers. The most recent technique uses Fabry-Perot interferometry exclusively, and it employs two lasers of different wavelength to decouple the refractive index and the thickness of the wafer [1].

An advantage of using Fabry-Perot interferometry exclusively is that it is not as affected by. Determination of refractive index and film thickness from interference fringes.

External reflection spectra may look different from transmission spectra in many ways, e.g. bands may be shifted to higher wavenumbers, spectra may follow the dispersion in the refractive index, and spectral contrast may not depend linearly on sample thickness.
