The optical constants (n, k, [[epsilon].sub.1], [[epsilon].sub.2]) and critical energy points ([E.sub.1], [E.sub.1] + [[DELTA].sub.1], [E'.sub.0], [E.sub.2], and [E'.sub.1]) had showed transilient changes from 250[degrees]C to 300[degrees]C, which are due to the top about two atomic layers oxidized.
