1. In a previous paper , there were three errors or unclear statements. To properly match boundary conditions, Eqs. (3) and (4) needed to be changed to represent relations between instead of , with the corresponding change that . The corrected equations are
To accommodate the change from to , a new matrix needed to be introduced to Eq. (28) to transform the components of to components of . This matrix is
in terms of components of , the inverse of the dielectric tensor for the rotated layer. This makes and with . The transfer matrix for the slab of material is then
2. A sign flip was introduced in Eq. (3′) that carries through to Eqs. (25) and (26). These equations are now
3. While not in error, Eqs. (16) and (17) are more clearly written as
