Paper Abstract

We report a unique technique to measure the refractive index (n), extinction coefficient (k), and thickness of thin films based on either the reflection or transmission spectra. The method combines a spectrometer, an optical microscope and a video camera. It is inexpensive, versatile and fast (< a few sec). Using this technology, n&k of 1.68 and 0.376, respectively, at 1500 nm was measured on a planar photonic crystal. The photonic crystal with a dimension of 117 X 90 micrometers 2 mm has a periodic cermet structure on Si substrate made by Deutsch Telekom using the electron induced deposition.
