List of Infrared Reflectance Files

Data were obtained on polished mineral samples. Reflectances are compared to a front surface Al mirror. To view images of the spectra, click on the  icon.  To download the data file, click on the link with the mineral name. Data are available as x,y text files. Data were obtained on oriented slabs with unpolarized light unless indicated otherwise.  Names such as (001) or (ac) indicate the crystal face off which the light was reflected. Polarized data, indicted by E||a, etc., were obtained with a polarizer consisting of a gold wire grid on an AgBr substrate.
