Paper Abstract

A study of the polarization of evanescent waves associated to internal total and inhibited reflection is done for ordinary and extraordinary incident wave on a uniaxial crystal-isotropic medium interface. It is shown that the field describe ellipses that are contained in planes that depend on the kind of evanescent wave. Furthermore the characteristics of the ellipses depend on the direction of incidence and/or on the direction of the optical axis. This behavior differs from that of isotropic interfaces.
