I was wondering why the reflectivity calculations in G4OpBoundaryProcess for the dielectric/metal interface (equations from "Reflection at the Boundary of an Absorbing Medium", by J. Hauptman and S. Lee), based on the complex refractive index of the metal, was not considering the incoming material refractive index. It seems that the equations consider the dielectric as air, is it the case? The standard Fresnel equations for two dielectrics consider both material refractive index, would it be different with reflections from a metal?
