Paper Abstract

Ellipsometric spectra of thick polymer films for non-linear optics were recorded at several angles of incidence. A non-linear regression analysis is used to compare an isotropic model to a uniaxial one. Analysis in the transparent region unambiguously points out the more suitable model, and the corresponding thickness. These results are subsequently used on all the spectrum, including the absorption domains, so as to give the complex ordinary and extraordinary indices. Relevant structural information on the polymer conformation is then inferred.
