A report on the various goals of ellipsometry was presented. Ellipsometry determined the optical and structural constants of thin films and flat surfaces based on the measurements of the ellipse of polarization in reflected or transmitted light. The results of ellipsometric measurements were fed to a computer program that searches the space of unknown parameters.
