Paper Abstract

A high precision reflectometer has been developed to measure the reflectivity (R) of various metals in the submillimeter frequency regime of the spectrum from 20 cm-1 - 85 cm-1. A high-purity (p ?.. 40K Ohm-cm) single crystal silicon etalon was designed and used as the reflection standard. Optical properties of the silicon were characterized using a submillimeter ellipsometer specifically designed for materials characterization at these frequencies. This enabled the reflectivity of the silicon to be calculated to a relatively high degree and thus achieve a final measurement precision for R of - 0.1%.
