Abstract [en]

Optical properties in terms of the complex-valued dielectric function were determined for spin-coated films of a Rose Bengal derivative using variable angle of incidence spectroscopic ellipsometry in the visible and infrared wavelength regions. In addition, the thickness and roughness of the films were determined and related to the solution concentration of Rose Bengal. Switching between two different oxidation states of the Rose Bengal derivative was investigated. The two states were chemically induced by exposure to vapors of hydrochloric acid and ammonia, respectively. A substantial and reversible change of the optical properties of the films was observed.

Abstract [en]

Optical material properties have been studied in a wide wavelength range. Theaim is future use of spectral design for camou age. The main characterization techniques used in this work are Refection Spectroscopy, Scatterometry (BRDF) and Mueller Matrix Ellipsometry. Six camouflage evaluation criteria based on reflection, emissivity, polarization, gloss, dynamic coloring and broadband properties, are to a greater or lesser degree related to the interaction between light and materia. Almost all are connected to the work of this thesis and are exemplied through dierent material categories with potential for use in camouföage applications. The included papers presents: a broad band (visible-infrared-microwave) study, two examples of dynamic optical properties of thin lms, and polarization and scattering properties of a natural surface.
