Abstract

A semiempirical multiphonon model based on quantum-mechanical oscillators under a Morse potential is applied to the absorption coefficient of far-infrared transmitting materials. Known material properties are combined with absorption coefficient data to fit the empirical parameters of the model. This provides an accurate means of predicting the intrinsic absorption of the materials in their multiphonon regions. Extinction data are obtained by measuring material transmittances with a Fourier-transform spectrometer and comparing them with the lossless transmittances predicted by Sellmeier models. Where appropriate, scatter models are used to separate the extinction into loss due to scatter and absorption. Data and model parameters are presented for GaAs, GaP, ZnS, and ZnSe.
