Fitting optical properties of metals by Drude-Lorentz and partial-fraction models in the [05;6] eV range

Abstract

Fitting optical properties of metals is of great interest for numerical methods in electromagnetism, especially finite difference time domain (FDTD). However, this is a tedious task given that theoretical models used usually fail to interlink perfectly with the experimental data. However, in this paper, we propose a method for fitting the relative permittivity of metals by a sum of Drude-Lorentz or a sum of partial-fraction models. We use the particle swarm optimization (PSO) hybridized either with Nelder-Mead downhill simplex, or with gradient method. The main electronic transitions in metals help to guide the fitting process toward the solution. The method is automatic and applied blindly to silver, gold, copper, aluminum, chromium, platinum, and titanium.
