- Contributors have decided the best values for n and k
- References in each critique allow the reader to go back to the original data to examine and understand where the values have come from
- Allows the reader to determine if any data in a spectral region needs to be filled in
- Gives a wide and detailed view of experimental techniques for measuring the optical constants n and k
- Incorporates and describes crystal structure, space-group symmetry, unit-cell dimensions, number of optic and acoustic modes, frequencies of optic modes, the irreducible representation, band gap, plasma frequency, and static dielectric constant

What People are Saying About This
"The beauty of this book is in the breadth of the spectral range covered....The value of this compilation of critically reviewed optical data far outweighs the books deficiencies and...this handbook must be regarded as a necessity in any physics or materials science reference library.
David M. Roessler, (General Motors Research Laboratories, Warren, Michigan, in Optical News)
"This set of five volumes...is a unique resource for any science and technology library. It provides materials researchers and optical device designers with reference facts in a context not available anywhere else....The community of materials researchers, spectroscopists, and optical device designers has reason to welcome the five-volume reference tool....These five book will be an invaluable addition to any researchers library.
Ivan P.Kaminow,( 1996 IEEE Congressional Fellow on the Staff of the House Science Committee, Member of the National Academy of Engineering, and Recipient of the Bell Labs Distinguished Member of the Technical Staff Award, IEEE Quantum Electronics Award, and the OSA Charles Townes Award)
From From the University of Reading, U.K.
This book is an essential addition to every scientific reference library and to the bookshelves of all who are interested in what is loosely referred to as the optical properties of solids.
The editor prepared a table that summarizes the optical properties of the materials reviewed in Volumes. I and II. The amount of the detail that it contains is truly astounding....There is a fundamental reason why a book of this type is much more usefulthan an abbreviated compilation....The book is attractive to workers in many fields because of the vast range of the data.
Philip Baumeister ( Coherent Auburn Group, Auburn, California, in Optics and Photonics News)
From 1996 IEEE Congressional Fellow on the Staff of the House Science Committee, Member of the National Academy of Engineering, and Recipient of the Bell Labs

"This book will serve as a useful reference. The editor and contributors deserve a measure of thanks for their effort to facilitate for us the finding values of the optical constants of 37 solids and for providing an in-one-placesummary of several techniques for determination of n and k.
R.M.A. Azzam and Jacqueline Casset ( Applied Optics)
