Reflectivity measurements on hot reactive liquids using an FIR laser

Johnston, S.F. and Clayman, B.P. (1980) Reflectivity measurements on hot reactive liquids using an FIR laser. Applied Optics, 19(18), pp. 3118-3120. (doi: 10.1364/AO.19.003118)




The experimental procedures and precautions required to measure liquid-alloy reflectivities with a cw far infrared (FIR) laser are described. The output of a carefully stabilized optically pumped FIR laser was channeled to a melted sample contained in a silica holder under a He atmosphere. By maintaining specular reflection and alloy homogeneity, reflectivities reproducible to ± 7% were routinely obtained.
