Abstract

Absorption Coefficient. The absorption of light by a solid is represented by an absorption coefficient α, which is defined by the expression
$$\frac{J}{{J_0 }} = \frac{{\left( {1 - R} \right)^2 }}{{e^{\Im d} - R^2 e^{ - ad} }},$$
(4.1.1)
where the left-hand side represents the ratio of the intensities of the transmitted J and incident J0 light, while R on the right-hand side represents the coefficient for a single reflection from the surface of a sample of thickness d.
