Spectroscopic ellipsometry measurements were carried out in the energy region between 1.0 and 5.5 eV at room temperature. X-ray diffraction measurements were achieved for structural characterization. The resulted pattern exhibited one peak belonging to (200) plane. Spectral variations of complex dielectric function, complex refractive index, absorption coefficient and dissipation function were obtained from the analyses of ellipsometry data. Real part of dielectric function increased up to 4.0 eV and then decreased suddenly at above this value. Zero frequency refractive index and dielectric constant were found to be 2.04 and 4.15, respectively. High frequency dielectric constant was determined to be 4.36. Optical band gap of PbMoO4 crystals was calculated as 3.09 eV. Two critical points with energies of 3.57 and 4.34 eV were estimated from the analyses of second-energy derivative spectra of real and imaginary parts of dielectric function. It was determined that [MoO4]2− complexes and charge transfer from Pb2+ ions into the neighboring Mo groups were responsible for these interband transitions. Dissipation function increased with increasing photon energy.
