ellipsometry and polarized
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.
