Short summary
The optical properties of aerosols are required to analyse measurements of aerosol properties, estimate radiative forcing and interpret remote sensing retrievals. We provide comprehensive data sets of the refractive indices of the most important inorganic aerosol constituents, reporting parameterisations for the wavelength and relative humidity dependencies for each system. We assess the accuracy of this study, made on single trapped particles, against previous less comprehensive data sets.
