Abstract

The infrared reflectance of water in the region 5000–300 cm−1 has been measured at near-normal incidence and at an incidence angle of 53°. On the basis of the measured values of spectral reflectance and the existing data on spectral transmittance, we have obtained values for the real and imaginary parts of the refractive index of water. The resulting values, which are presented in both graphical and tabular form, are compared with recent determinations by other investigators.
