blique Incidence Oblique Incidence the previous lecture we discussed the general In the previous lecture we discussed the general cases of obliquely incident waves on boundaries. e reflection coefficients were dependant upon The reflection coefficients were dependant upon the angle of incidence, (angle between the rface normal and the direction of propagation surface normal and the direction of propagation of the incident wave), the electrical properties of the materials on both sides of the boundary and the polarization of the electric and magnetic fields.

Total Transmission ne question that we can ask: Is there an One question that we can ask: Is there an incident angle that would result in a reflection efficient of zero (i e Total transmission of coefficient of zero, (i.e. Total transmission of incident field into the medium on the other de of the boundary)? side of the boundary)? In order to answer this question we must look the reflection coefficients for both parallel at the reflection coefficients for both parallel and perpendicular polarization.
