Paper Abstract

We present a comprehensive study of the polarization characteristic of an unsupported film/pellicle in the transmission mode through the use of the transmission ellipsometric function τ. We determine the behavior of the unsupported film. In addition, we identify all possible transmission polarization devices using a pellicle. We present for the first time analytically-derived closed-form design formulae for each and every device, in addition to a unified closed-form design formula that works for the design of any and all possible devices. It also works for any general transmission polarization device. Due to the limited size of the paper, we only present a limited number of device characteristics and performance.
