Paper Abstract

Vacuum deposited anisotropic films offer unique optical properties but currently suffer from several problems, including instability and excessive haze. We discuss the use of transmission- mode perpendicular incidence ellipsometry and waveguiding for measuring the birefringent properties of tilted columnar films, and describe an in situ method for measuring anisotropic optical scatter distributions. Our results show that the properties of the films depend on deposition conditions, including substrate temperature.
