Unformatted text preview: This week Please hand in Lab 2 HW4 due next week Today we start lab 3 Jones Vectors E = E x sin( kz t ) x + E y sin( kz t + ) y E = E x sin( kz t + x ) x + E y sin( kz t + y ) y E = [ E x e i x x + E y e i y y ] e i ( kz t ) = E e i ( kz t ) E = E x e i x E y e i y Can factor out the amplitude and normalize this to unit length Jones Vectors linear polarization E = A 1 (normalization) 1 general linear polarization cos sin circular polarization E = [ E x e i x x + E y e i y y ] e i ( kz t ) (leftcircularly polarized) E = [ A x + Ae i 2 y ] e i ( kz t ) (remember: e i 2 = cos 2 + i sin 2 ) E = A 1 2 1 i Uses of Jones Vectors 1 i leftcircularly polarized 1 i...
