We present an experimental, self-consistent determination of the optical constants (refractive index) of Pt using a combination of photoabsorption and reflectance data in the photon energy range 25–778 eV, which includes the N- and O-shell electronic absorption edges of Pt. We compare our new experimental values with Pt optical constant data sets from the literature. Our Pt optical constant values reveal highly resolved absorption-edge fine structure around the O2,3 and N6,7 edges in both the absorptive and dispersive portions of the refractive index, which were missing in the earlier literature.
