Abstract : This report describes a method for the determination of the optical constants of semitransparent films. A table expressing the optical constants in terms of reflectance, transmittance, and film thickness is presented. The report has been submitted to the Graduate Faculty of the Iowa State College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts as a dissertation in partial fulfillment of the requirements for a degree of Doctor of Philosophy. Since the research work described was performed at the Naval Ordnance Laboratory, the dissertation is reproduced with minor changes as an official Laboratory report. (Author)
