Paper Abstract

A sample of cadmium telluride coating was formed onto a germanium substrate by thermal evaporation. The optical constants were measured by a modification of the envelope method in which only data from transmission spectrum are used and the procedure is simple. Accuracies are about one part in the third decimal place with the technique. The sample was mounted in a vacuum chamber and its optical constants were measured as a function of wavelength, from 2.5 - 20micrometers , at four fixed temperatures. Results in the form of refractive index versus temperature and wavelength are presented, as well as values of dn/dT as a function of wavelength and temperature.
