I am solving a temperature distribution problem related to laser drilling. In the equation I am encountering a term called ' Absorption or extinction coeffcient' of alumina. Can anybody tell how to find this ?
One may wish to read this article:

"The importance of kinetics in the abrupt change of the absorption coefficient of molten Al2O3 is noted. "
Meanwhile, there is a discussion of extinction coefficient here:
