This is the third volume of the very successful set. This updated volume will contain non-linear properties of some of the most useful materials as well as chapters on optical measurement techniques. 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. It allows the reader to determine if any data in a spectral region needs to be filled in. It gives a wide and detailed view of experimental techniques for measuring the optical constants n and k. It 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.

PRAISE FOR THE FIVE-VOLUME SET
"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 books will be an invaluable addition to any researcher's 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 AwardAbout the Author:
Edward D. Palik received his B.S. in Physics 1950, his M.S. in 1952, and his Ph.D. in 1955 from Ohio State University. He specialized in far-infrared spectroscopy and was assistant professor at Ohio State University during 1955-1956. He was a NSF fellow at the University of Michigan in 1956 and 1957 and a General Motors Fellow at Ohio State University from 1957-1958. He became an NRC Fellow at the Naval Research Laboratory in 1958 and soon converted to a research physicist in 1959. During the rest of his career at NRL he worked in magnetooptics of semiconductors, for which he was awarded the Hulburt Award in 1964. This is the highest internal scientific award given at the Naval Research Laboratory. He also worked on the optical properties of semiconductors, total-internal-reflection spectroscopy studies of surface polaritons, cathodoluminescence studies of solids, and orientation-dependent etching of silicon in aqueous potassium-hydroxide solutions.He was editor for the first years of the newsletter of the Far Infrared and Submillimeter Wave Technical Group of the OSA. After his retirement in 1988, he joined the Institute for Physical Science and Technology at the University of Maryland as a part-time research associate. While there he carried out Brillouin-scattering studies of solids and studies of defects in Fabry Perot plates.
