Abstract

We analyze the form birefringence dispersion of periodic dielectric layered media. Using Bloch wave analysis, we investigate the shape of the normal surface and its dependence on wavelength. Our higher-order uniaxial approximation gives an explicit expression for the additional dispersion of the form birefringence that is due to the finite layer thickness.
