Refractive Index, Phase Velocity, Group Velocity, and Dispersion Parameter The index of refraction of a dielectric as a function of wavelength may be accu- rately represented using a Sellmeier equation of the form n 2 = A + ± k G k λ 2 λ 2 - λ 2 k , where A , λ k , and G k are called the Sellmeier coefficients. The quantities λ k and G k represent resonant wavelengths and oscillator strengths respectively. For fused quartz, A =1 , λ 1 =68 . 4 nm , G 1 =0 . 69617, λ 2 = 116 . 2 nm , G 2 =0 . 40794, λ 3 = 9896 . 2 nm , G 3 =0 . 89748. Calculate, showing all work, the refractive index n
