Abstract

Calculation of the optical constants of InP and GaP is presented. The employed model is a modification of Adachi's model of the optical constants of semiconductors, which employs adjustable broadening instead of the conventional Lorentzian one. In this work we do not take into account excitonic effects at E1 and E11 critical points. In such a manner, fewer adjustable model parameters are required and the term with dubious physical interpretation describing excitons at E1 and E 11 is left out. We obtain excellent agreement with experimental data over the entire 1-6 eV range, with relative rms error for the refractive index equal 1.0% for InP and 1.2% for GaP.
