We report the first multiple angle of incidence ellipsometry in the Extreme Ultra-Violet region. Extreme sensitivity to sub-atomic size of the relative amplitude attenuation of a thin film sample is evident. A large variation of the states of polarization was observed as the angle of incidence was varied. Best fit analysis with a model of a single layer with rough boundaries shows that EUV ellipsometry is sensitive enough to resolve the refractive index of 0.001 and the thickness of 0.1nm.
