This work examines the reflectivity and transmissivity of a TE-polarized wave incident on a microcavity containing strongly coupled excitons with in-plane uniaxially oriented transition dipole moments and presents a different interpretation to a previous report. The propagation of the electric field inside the cavity is discussed and a distinction is made between two different physical cases: the first, previously observed, and the second, which enables the interpretation of measurements performed on a microcavity containing an oriented layer of liquid-crystalline poly(9,9-dioctylfluorene). In all cases, the reflected and transmitted electric fields derive from photons leaking parallel and perpendicular to the transition dipole moment orientation.
