Thin hexagonal boron nitride films with a thickness of several monoatomic layers have been manufactured by splitting of bulk samples in an ultrasonic bath. The transmission, reflection, and photoluminescence spectra of such films are studied. The spectral dependences of linear and circular polarization of light passing through the sample are measured. Scanning electron microscopy investigation demonstrates homogeneity of the obtained samples. However, investigation of Stokes parameters of light passing through the sample makes it possible to reveal hidden anisotropy of optical properties of these films.
