A study of stress birefringence in models of pellicles has been conducted. Models have been examined in terms of their isochromatic lines of stress. The intensity variations in exposure due to these lines has been characterized for a pellicle model under diametral compression. It has been found that exposure variation due to pellicle stress birefringence is below one percent.
