Joseph C. Palais 3.6 4 CRITICAL ANGLE REFLECTION 1 2 sin n n c = θ Call the solution θ c , the critical angle . θ c only exists if n 1 > n 2 . That is, travel from a high index to a low index material. This result is valid for both polarizations. (3.34) The incident angle satisfying this equation is the angle whose sine is given by:
