The ellipsometric parameter ψ is neglible for the monolayer, fatty acid film indicating it is nonabsorbing and does not alter the refractive index of the substrate.
This model applies only for the monolayer fatty acid film at saturation. No statistical averaging due to thermal motion of the molecules is taken into account.

The convention on sign of the tangent in the Fresnel equation is that used by many writers. For a discussion of convention see, D. Clarke and F. Granger, Polarized Light and Optical Measurement (Pergamon, New York, 1971).
This accuracy was estimated from the scattering of the results (±0.01°). It also includes calibration error (±0.01°). The cylindrical cell used was tested between two crossed polarizers and was found to have negligible birefringence.
