Unformatted text preview: SK5 Flint Glass Reflection and Refraction Light from a sodium discharge lamp is filtered to allow only the sodium D line ( = 589 . 3 nm ) to be transmitted through the filter. Both TE and TM polarizations are present in the resulting light wave. This light is in air ( n = 1 . 00) and is now incident upon SK5 flint glass. At this wavelength, the index of refraction of this glass is 1.58904. For the above air/glass interface, calculate, showing all work, the Brewster angle (if it exists) and the critical angle (if it exists). Express angles (if they exist) in degrees accurately to within 0.0001 . If an angle does not exist, write does not exist. Put your final answers in the spaces provided. The incident light has an angle of incidence of 30 as measured counter-clockwise from the normal. For this case, for the reflected and transmitted propagating waves, cal- culate, showing all work, the quantities on the attached sheet. Express angles in degrees accurately to within 0.0001accurately to within 0....
