  1. Use of metallic substrates will be dealt with separately.
  2. For a discussion of conventional division-of-amplitude polarizing beam splitters and half-shade devices see J. M. Bennett, H. E. Bennett, in Handbook of Optics, W. G. Driscoll, W. Vaughan, Eds. (McGraw-Hill, New York, 1978).
  3. See, for example, R. M. A. Azzam, N. M. Bashara, Ellipsometry and Polarized Light (North-Holland, Amsterdam, 1977).
