A dielectric waveguide is shown in the figure below with refractive indices as labeled. Incident light enters the guide at angle from the front surface normal as shown. Once inside, the light totally reflects at the upper n 1- n 2 interface, where n 1 > n 2 . All subsequent reflections from the upper and lower boundaries will be total as well, and so the light is confined to the guide. Express , in terms of n 1 and n 2 , the maximum value of such that total confinement will occur, with n = 1. The quantity sin is known as the numerical aperture of the guide....
