Complex 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 « Complex », with the complexe refractive index (real and imaginary part).

Children nodes

Spectrum n

Refractive index spectrum (real part), unit-less

Spectrum k

Refractive index spectrum (imaginary part), unit-less.
