The titanium surfaces immersed in 0.5 -3 H 2SO 4 and anodized in the voltage region from 0 to 100 V have been studied by in situ ellipsometric measurements. The thickness, inhomogeneity, and porosity of the formed films rise with increasing applied voltage. A computational method is presented for obtaining both the refractive indices and thickness of an unknown film on a reflecting substrate of know optical constants. The complex index of refraction and thickness of generated films were calculated comparing the theoretical computed curve with experimental loci $\Delta$ and $\Psi$ obtained from in situ ellipsometric measurements.
