Calculating the optical constants, refractive indices, and extinction coefficients of the metal–polymer composite polyparaxylylene–silver

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


This paper presents the results of a calculation of the optical characteristics—the extinction coefficient and refractive index—of a metal–polymer composite of polyparaxylylene–silver in the wavelength range 300–2000 nm for various silver concentrations. An algorithm is described for doing the calculation by means of a specially created program. Using the resulting data, multilayer polymeric interference filters based on a metal–polymer nanocomposite of polyparaxylylene–silver are presented that cut off the UV and visible wavelength ranges.
