A new method for the measurement of anisotropic stress in thin films based on 2-D fast Fourier transform (FFT) is presented. A modified Twyman-Green interferometer was used for surface topography measurement. A fringe normalization technique was also used to improve the phase extraction technique efficiently. The measurement of anisotropic stress in obliquely deposited MgF2 thin film was demonstrated.
