How do you make a stealth aircraft ? hy do we see colours on top of Why do we see colours on top of a film of oil in a puddle ? ©AGK 2005 ECSE 352 3.3-3 Learning outcomes After taking this class you should be able to: • Define the wave impedance of the total field • Explain the way in which the concept of wave pedance relates to the ehaviour f waves at impedance relates to the behaviour of waves at multilayer dielectrics • Calculate the reflection and transmission coefficients for a two layer dielectric • Describe the conditions required for high and low eflectance for a two layer dielectric reflectance for a two layer dielectric • Explain the principles of a 1/4 wave dielectric antireflection coating ©AGK 2005 ECSE 352 3.3-4
