Constant Angle of Incidence Contours for an Air-SiO2-Si System
The ellipsometric function for an ambient-film-substrate system is defined as the ratio of complex-amplitude reflection coefficients for the and polarization:[more]
The figure shows such a family of non-intersecting, constant angle of incidence contours (CAIC) for (normal incidence) to (grazing incidence) for the system at .[less]
