Abstract

An analytical solution for the determination of the substrate refractive index of a single-layered system from ellipsometric measurements is presented. It is shown that the above ellipsometric inverse problem is reduced to the finding of the roots of a third-degree polynomial. A unique approximate solution in the case of a thin covering layer is also presented.
