Interpretations for the energies corresponding to the peaks in the reflectivity and the imaginary part (2) of the complex dielectric constant (=1+i2) have been sought successfully using Penn-like model calculations. The valence-bandd-band coupling present in Ge may contribute to the effective number of electrons in GeO2 at the observed peaks at high energies.
