Derived optical constants

n   k   logX   logY   eV

Dispersion formula [ i ]

$$n^2-1=3.110014+\frac{3.669697λ^2}{λ^2-0.426372^2}+\frac{2.358954λ^2}{λ^2-59.555103^2}$$

Comments

Room temperature. Refractive index is relative to air at standard conditions; Wavelength in dispersion formula is as measured in air and expressed in micrometers.
