We present a method for treating birefringent effects in layered media, and apply it to porous silicon structures. The approach is to characterize the fields in terms of s- and p-polarized amplitudes in each layer. The calculations then naturally employ Fresnel reflection and transmission coefficients for the anisotropic media.
