The x and y axes defined in this reference coincide, respectively, with the s and p axes for the reflected wave. In (1), the argument of the tangent function must be chosen between −45° and +45° in order that −1 ≦ e≦ + 1.
  5. A more detailed development of equations similar to (2a) and (2b) is contained in D. A. Holmes, J. Opt. Soc. Am. 54, 1340 (1964). Equations (2a) and (2b) relate the polarization state of the reflected wave to the polarization state of the incident wave and, through the quantities Δ and γ, show how the polarization state of the reflected wave is influenced by the thin-film reflection. Note that Δ and γ are independent of δi and γi.

Fig. 1

Parameters which describe the polarization state of reflections from a CaF2 film deposited on a microscope slide, assuming refractive index values reported by Hacskaylo. Theoretical values of △ (degrees) vs angle of incidence ϕ0 (degrees). The curve numbers specify the film thickness d as follows: (1) d = λ/20, (2) d = λ/5, (3) d = λ/4, and (4) d = 3λ/10, where λ is the vacuum wavelength. The curves were plotted from calculations of △ and tanγ, using ϕ0 = 0°, 2°, 4°, ⋯, 90°.
