Polarization Given: F i n d : 60 1 ? 3 130 2 02 . 0 0 3 I I A circularly polarized beam of intensity I 0 travels in the +z direction and is incident from the left on a stack of three linear polarizers as shown in the diagram above. The transmission axes of the first two polarizers make angles with the x-axis of = 60 ° and = 130 °, respectively. The ratio of the intensity of the beam at the exit of the three polarizers to the incident intensity is I 3 / I 0 = 0.02. What is , the angle between the x-axis and the transmission axis of the third polarizer? Solutions a.) To find 3 we can use the following formula: 2 0 1 I I   2 cos cos 1
