Absorbance dielectric function

Description

Dielectric function This node allows defining any dielectric function for describing homogenous isotropic materials ranging from dielectrics (water, glass, …) to semiconductors and metals. This is defined as « Absorbance », with refractive index (real part) and absorbance spectrum.

Children nodes

Spectrum n

Refractive index spectrum (real part), unit-less

Spectrum a

Absorbance spectrum, m-1 unit.
