Unformatted text preview: HW 10 Phys5406 S05 due 5/3/05 1)JDJ 6-10 2)An optical fiber is made out of transparent material of index of refraction n = 1.5, in the shape of a right circular cylinder. The axis of the cylinder is the z axis and the faces of the cylinder are at z = 0 and z = L. Neglecting losses in the fiber show that all light entering the fiber at z = 0 is trapped in the fiber and will get to z = L. Will the same result hold if n = 1.1? Explain by calculating the largest angle of incidence at z = 0 for which all the light gets to z =L. 3)JDJ 7-2 4)JDJ 7-3 1 ...
