Optical constants of MgO (Magnesium monoxide)
Stephens and Malitson 1952: n 0.405-0.768 µm

Wavelength: µm
 (0.4047 – 0.7679)  
 

Complex refractive index (n+ik)[ i ]


n   k   LogX   LogY   eV

Derived optical constants

Dispersion formula [ i ]

$$n^2=2.957019+\frac{0.0216485}{λ^2-0.0158650}-0.0101373λ^{2}$$

Comments

30 °C. This formula gives more accurate values for visible than the other formula describing the entire transmission range.
