ellipsometry and polarized light L119AB
R.M.A. Azzam and N.M. Bashara, 1977, softcover, 530 pages.
The authors present a comprehensive study of the different mathematical representations of polarized light and how such light is processed by optical systems, especially ellipsometers. Electro-magnetic theory is used to relate ellipsometric measurements to surface properties. Experimental techniques and apparatus are described and many interesting applications of ellipsometry to surface and thin film phenomena are reviewed. This text is the classic publication in the field.  Check availablity.
