Dispersion surface for the two states of polarization. Solid curve: polarization normal to the plane of incidence [(C = 1)]; broken curve: polarization parallel to the plane of incidence [(C = \cos 2\theta)]. The direction of propagation of the energy of the wavefields is along the Poynting vector, S, normal to the dispersion surface.
