Abstract

A numerical method developed previously [J. Appl. Phys. 80, 4621 (1996)] has been extended to simulate the nonnormal-incidence reflectance-difference spectroscopy and transmittance-difference spectroscopy spectra of biaxial anisotropic (xyz) multilayer systems with finite thickness. It is demonstrated that, when the principal axes of the anisotropy layer are at certain orientations, a reflectance-difference spectrum can be separated into two spectra, namely, an in-plane anisotropic spectrum and an out-of-plane anisotropic spectrum. It is shown that the separation is valid for large in-plane anisotropy, i.e., |x-y||x|, and an incident angle of 20°.
