Experimental results of optical study of the single-grain zinc samples are presented. Compo-nents of Zn dielectric function tensor were measured by spectroscopic ellipsometry in the 0.1–5 eVspectral range. In the NIR-UV range, the dielectric function spectra show two clearly resolved,polarization-dependent optical features located at about 1 eV and 1.7 eV. The optical response ofZn is analyzed on a basis of the simple, nearly-free electron type, structure of the electron energyspectrum. The performed theoretical calculations of the optical conductivity spectra well reproducethe experimental data.
