Abstract

It is shown that attenuation of total internal reflection, when measured under conditions in which the reflectivity is minimized with respect to the thickness of the intermediate layer for a three-layer structure, might be well suited for determining the dielectric function of metals. Experimental results for several metals in the optical range of the spectrum are presented.
