Unformatted text preview: Projection of Refracted Wavevector An electromagnetic plane wave with wavevector E1 is propagating in region 1, a
homogeneous isotropic dielectric of refractive index 711 as shown in the diagram. This
ray is incident upon a plane interface between region 1 and region 2. The 2 axis is nor
mal to this interface. The second region is a homogeneous isotropic dielectric of refrac
tive index n2. The incident ray is refracted into region 2 where it now has a wavevector
792. The refraction of this wave is described by phase matching at the boundary. That
is, the tangential component of the wavevector along the interface is the same for the incident wave and for the refracted wave. Thus, sin61 : sinﬁg, Where = 27m1/A, = 27rn2/A, and A is the freespace wavelength. Thus n1 sin 01 = .
n2 sin 02. This result occurs when phase matching is applied to the plane of incidence
(the plane containing E and the normal to the interface, However, phase matching applies to any plane normal to the interface. Using the above information, derive, showing all work, an expression for 02152 as
a function of 02:51, 01, and 62 only. Eliminate kzrl and kzm2 and all other parameters from your ﬁnal result. Put your ﬁnal answer in the space provided. 021:2 — Projection of Refracted Wavevector km = km 372110le 2 k1 sin 01 cos 9251
