Reflection of light from an anisotropic film on an anisotropic substrate

  • V. A. Odarich
Optics and Spectroscopy


The ellipsometric equations are presented for a reflecting film system consisting of an anisotropic layer and an anisotropic substrate with the principal axes of the dielectric tensor in the plane of incidence of the sample. Linear Drude approximations are obtained for the angular dependences of the ellipsometric parameters.
