Complex refractive index

Abstract: Characterizes the propagation of a light wave in a medium in which there is a loss of energy, that is, the electromagnetic wave experiences attenuation, due to various loss mechanisms such as the generation of phonons (lattice waves), photogeneration, free carrier absorption, scattering, etc.

Keywords: Refractive index, Laser Sensor.
