Would the matrix be:

[tex]

\left(\begin{array}{ccc}

\frac{e^{i\theta}}{\sqrt{2}} &\frac{e^{i\delta}}{\sqrt{2}} \\

\frac{e^{i\theta}}{\sqrt{2}} & -\frac{e^{i\delta}}{\sqrt{2}}

\end{array}\right)

[/tex]

I put that down as an answer and got it marked wrong, and what the grader wrote down as the answer is what you get when you set all angles in the matrix to zero.

Do you get different physical results if you choose different phase factors?
