Paper Abstract

In this paper we examine the accuracy of different algorithms for the FFT-based Hilbert transform, compared with the much slower Kramers-Kronig transform. For the transform from imaginary to real refractive indices, the Kramers-Kronig transform gives deviations from the correct n((nu) ) spectra of 0.05%, while some existing algorithms for the Hilbert transform give up to 4% deviation over a wide wavenumber range. The BZ algorithm for the Hilbert transform is presented which gives n((nu) ) accurate to 0.05% deviation, the same as the Kramers-Kronig transform. The BZ algorithm for the transform from real to imaginary refractive index gives k((nu) ) accurate to 0.2% of the largest k((nu) ) value in the spectrum.
