Unformatted text preview: refracted beams are perpendicular to each other, is known as the Brewster angle. The Brewster angle, the angle of incidence required to produce a linearlypolarized reflected beam, is given by: This expression can be derived using Snell's law, and the law of reflection. The diagram below shows some of the geometry involved. Using Snell's law:...
