The DOCCD (Database of Optical Constants for Cosmic Dust) hosted at the AIU, Friedrich Schiller University Jena, Germany, contains complex refractive indices of solid materials relevant for cosmic dust (Silicates, Oxides, Sulphides Carbonates, Carbides, Carbon materials, …). These data have been determined from specular reflection and transmission spectra of polished samples and thin films, measured in various wavelength ranges from the UV to the far IR, in some cases temperature-dependent.
