Abstract

In this chapter some of the presently known optical properties of zinc oxide are reviewed. In particular, the anisotropic dielectric functions (DFs) of ZnO and related compounds from the far-infrared (FIR) to the vacuum-ultraviolet (VUV) spectral range are studied. Thereupon, many fundamental physical parameters can be derived, such as the optical phonon-mode frequencies and their broadening values, the free-charge-carrier parameters, the static and “high-frequency” dielectric constants, the dispersion of the indices of refraction within the band-gap region, the fundamental and above-band-gap band-to-band transition energies and their excitonic contributions.
