Homework Assignment #1 Due January 16, 2008 Reading Assignment: Shen and Kong, or 130B textbook covering rectangular waveguides and polarization representations Problem 2. Imagine that we have randomly polarized room light incident almost normally on the glass surface of a radar screen. A portion of it would be specularly reflected back toward the viewer and would thus tend to obscure the display. Suppose now that we cover the screen with a ‘right-circular polarizer’ as shown in the following figure. Trace the incident and reflected beams, indicating their polarization states. What happens to the reflected beam? Hint: The ‘right-circular polarizer’ consists of a polarizer and a quarterwave plate. The polarizer transmits the wave linearly polarized

along its axis and rejects the wave polarized in the orthogonal direction to its axis. The quarter wave plate is an optical element that introduces a relative phase shift of π / 2 between the consituent orthogonal o - and e- components
