Optical constants of substances of atmospheric aerosol

  • L. S. Ivlev
  • S. I. Popova


The optical constants of the chemical compounds constituting the atmospheric aerosol were investigated in a wide spectral range. This investigation indicates that higher values of the refractive index than that of water must be used in calculations of the optical characteristics of the aerosol in the IR region. The main absorption bands of the aerosol in the atmospheric windows are determined.
