Abstract : An expression has been derived for the transmission of infrared radiation through epitaxial films having a mat surface, which takes into account the scattering at the surface. This has been applied to the analysis of measurements of the fundamental absorption edge of epitaxial films of InAs. The results of this application include the evaluation of the intensity of the scattered light for several InAs films, and good agreement with published values of the absorption coefficient.
