Abstract.  The stresses in thin films are one of the main problems in the development of small dimensions or thin optical components. In order to produce low-tension anisotropic coatings, the characterization of serial bideposition is essential. Structural and optical performance have been tested for anisotropic TiO2 thin films deposited by serial bideposition technique. Three-dimensional surface interferometric measurements were performed for samples deposited at various angles. Also experimental observations of anisotropic tensions in annealed two-dimensional sculptured thin films of TiO2 material are presented. The deposition angle of 80 deg is considered to be the most applicable for developing optical components due to the befitting optical performance and the lowest tensions before and after the annealing.
