Paper Abstract

The sensitivities of surface plasmon resonance spectroscopy are higher than reflection/transmission measurement in determining the anisotropic properties of an arbitrarily oriented anisotropic thin film. The corrected Airy formula for calculating the reflection coefficient is used to calculate the reflection of the Kretschmann configuration by considering the nonsymmetric reflection phenomenon in anisotropic film. The optical constants and the thickness of the anisotropic film are obtained from the attenuated-total-reflection (ATR) curve.
