Abstract

The modulated reflected and nonreflected light fluxes, measured as the azimuth of incident linearly polarized light is varied, yield the absolute reflectances Rp and Rs of a dielectric or semiconductor surface. Application to a reflective Si detector determines the refractive index and thickness of a SiO2 film on the detector surface.
