Stephens and Malitson 1952: n 0.36-5.4 µm

Wavelength: µm
 (0.36 – 5.4)  
 

Derived optical constants

logX   logY   eV

Dispersion formula [ i ]

$$n^2=2.956362+\frac{0.02195770}{λ^2-0.01428322}-0.01062387λ^{2}-0.0000204968λ^{4}$$

Comments

23.3 °C. Formula for entire transmission range; use the other formula for more accurate index values in the visible.
