It will be noticed that this point is not on the line P = A+[pi]/2 However, if [chi] = 0, then the deepest minimum occurs at zero azimuth for both P and L, and thus either method of alinement may be used if the light is perfectly plane polarized.
A step-by-step procedure for alinement of the ellipsometer is as follows:
This procedure eliminates alinement errors due to ellipticity produced by the polarizer.
