Abstract
A curve fitting method for determining the optical constants of some dielectric thin films is described with dispersion theory in the paper. A computer program based on Matlab is developed and optimized. The fitting errors are analyzed with theoretical data, which gives very high accurate results. A program is applied to fitting the measured photometric spectra of ion sputtered zirconia and silica thin films in 200-850nm spectra range. The thickness is verified with the method of grazing x-ray diffraction. With the thickness known, the optical constants of zirconia films near the absorption range are obtained with single-wavelength method. As a result, quite good fitting results are obtained with high accuracy. Finally, an ultraviolet (UV) high-pass optical filter is designed with optical constants extracted by this method. The transmission and reflection spectra of the filter are measured and compared to designed spectra. A good coherence was derived.
