We present models for the optical functions of 11 metals used as mirrors and contacts in optoelectronic and optical devices: noble metals ͑Ag, Au, Cu͒, aluminum, beryllium, and transition metals ͑Cr, Ni, Pd, Pt, Ti, W͒. We used two simple phenomenological models, the Lorentz-Drude ͑LD͒ and the Brendel-Bormann ͑BB͒, to interpret both the free-electron and the interband parts of the dielectric response of metals in a wide spectral range from 0.1 to 6 eV. Our results show that the BB model wasdoi:10.1364/ao.37.005271 pmid:18286006 fatcat:ybrkradhvnhknjqrsx3l6fyulq
