Let r be the reflection coefficient for external rays reflecting off the glass and let r’ be the coefficient for internal reflection within the glass. Let t be the transmission coefficient for rays entering and t’ be the coefficient for rays exiting. a) Show that the phase delay (associated with the extra path length indicated by the purple arrow) of the back surface reflected ray relative to the front surface reflected ray is given by: ) cos( 4 t d n b) Considering multiple reflections (an infinite number) show that Eq. 9.51 and Eq. 9.52 are obtained. Indicate where Stoke’s relationships are used. c) If we assume that the glass thickness d is 100 wave lengths, and that the index n=1.501, use Eq. 9.52 to determine Intensity incident Intensity reflected R for light at normal incidence i . d) What is the minimum incident angle corresponding to a maximum?...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
