The plasma electroreflectance mechanism is discussed for lead and indium electrodes in terms of microscopic theory of light reflection from metals. The calculation is performed for s- and p-polarized light. It is shown that the electroreflectance signal obtained in p-polarized light is determined, not only by the double-layer capacitance but also by the potential dependence of the characteristic length of electron density decay outside the metal. The results of the numerical calculations are compared with experimental data.
