Interesting and unexpected optical anisotropy were observed for these films deposited at non-normal angles of incidence.
For the modeling of optical properties, we propose to couple the mechanical anisotropy to the optical anisotropy as in the work of Kuhn and Grun [6], Arruda and Przybylo [7], and Wu and Van Der Giessen [8].
Microscopically, this optical anisotropy may be due to an anisotropy of the scatterers or to anisotropic arrangement of the scatterers.
This optical anisotropy is attributable to the orientation of the polymer macromolecules.
