© Springer International Publishing AG, part of Springer Nature 2018. In this chapter we present basic concepts which are relevant to link the results obtained from ellipsometry data analysis with fundamental properties of semiconductors for photovoltaic applications. The linear optical properties of semiconductors are best discussed in terms of the relationship between the dielectric function varepsilon and the band structure.
