A Optical band gap of a cobalt ferrite

  1. May 6, 2016 #1
    Hi everyone
    How can I determine the optical band gap of a cobalt ferrite film deposited on a glass substrate using its absorption, transmittance and diffuse reflectance spectrum (knowing that I don't know the thickness of this film)

    thanks Vagn for replying me
    but i don't have the thickness of the film (so i can not determine the absorption coefficient alpha that i need for the tauc plot)

    You can plot αd instead of α.

    and how can i determine the band gap from that plot

    Replace the α's for the Tauc plot with αd's. As d is constant, it just changes the scale.

    i will do it
    thank you i really appreciate your help
