The far infrared optical properties of InP at 6 and 300 K

  • H. Jamshidi
  • T. J. Parker


The amplitude and phase reflection spectra of InP have been determined in the far infrared at 6 and 300 K by dispersive Fourier transform spectroscopy and used to calculate values of the optical constants and dielectric functions in the region of the fundamental lattice resonance.
