Abstract

The record is set straight concerning two equations that determine the reflection phase shifts at a single interface from the intensity reflectances for p- and s-polarized light at one angle of incidence. These equations appeared previously in this journal [ J. Opt. Soc. Am. 691007 ( 1979); erratum, J. Opt. Soc. Am. 70261 ( 1980)].
