Unformatted text preview: Transmitted and Reflected Amplitudes at Critical Angle Light of freespace wavelength is propagating in glass of relatively high refractive index n 1 . This light is then incident upon a planar interface with a material of relatively low refractive index n 2 . Thus n 2 < n 1 . The angle of incidence is an angular amount below the critical angle for total internal reflection, c , as measured counter-clockwise from the normal. The quantity is a vanishingly small. Both TE and TM polarizations are present in the incident light wave. For the transmitted and reflected waves, calculate, showing all work, the quanti- ties listed below. Express your answers as functions of n 1 and n 2 only . Write your final answers in the spaces provided. TE Polarized Transmitted Wave Angle of transmitted wavevector (with respect to normal to boundary) = Fraction of amplitude transmitted = TE Polarized Reflected Wave Angle of reflected wavevector (with respect to normal to boundary) = Fraction of amplitude reflected =...
