Assuming reflection and refraction of a plane electromagnetic wave at the interface between two uncharged and isolating dielectric media, derive the amplitude ratios for the reflected and refracted waves relative to the incoming wave’s amplitude for the following two cases: a. E 1 is linearly polarized in the plane perpendicular to

Unformatted text preview: k 1 and n, b. E 1 is linearly polarized in the plane of k 1 and n . 2. Derive the four Fresnel formulae. 3. Demonstrate explicitly that the reflected and refracted waves conserve energy: T+R=1. Assume again a plane electromagnetic wave to be incident on an interface between two uncharged and isolating dielectric media. Hint: (E 0i ) 2 + (E 0i ) 2 = |E 0i | 2 ....
