Abstract

A method for the preparation and mounting of thin aluminum oxide films from ordinary household aluminum foil is described. Free films covering a circular area of 3.3 cm2 and as thin as 250 A were mounted on glass rings. Infrared reflectance and transmission measurements show that there is absorption beyond 11 microns for even the thinnest films.
