Analytical expressions for the reflection and transmission of a plane light wave falling upon an anisotropic and absorbing interface are deduced. The reflectance and transmittance of an anisotropic and absorbing film is calculated, and a method for determining optical constants of an anisotropic absorbing film is developed.
