This paper describes a simple procedure to determine the local thickness of a thin anisotropic layer. It also discriminates between isotropic and anisotropic regions, provided a smoothness hypothesis on the refractive index distribution is satisfied. The procedure is based on the analysis of surface plasmon resonance (SPR) data acquired in an imaging mode. The general arrangement of the setup is the Kretschmann configuration. We show, on an azobenzene modified polymer layer, good agreementdoi:10.1364/oe.27.003264 fatcat:qbdbojrlova47oxwz47rcvtuje
