For null ellipsometry, error equations for polarizer and analyzer angles are formulated in terms of the anisotropic defect parameters of the compensator. Errors of δ ψ and δ Δ for dielectric samples are about the same as those for the straight-through case. Explicit analytical solutions of 8v and So for metallic samples are derived in terms of the anisotropic retardations with large deviations from quarter-wave. The analytical solutions agree with the results obtained from the direct computer simulation of the null ellipsometer as well as with the numerical solutions for the error equations.
