Unformatted text preview: assuming that µ 1 = 2 = o . Confirm that R + T = 1. For those of you who have had optics, R and T are generally referred to as reflectance and transmittance. The names reflection and transmission coefficients are generally reserved for the amplitudes. 6. Suppose Ae iax + Be ibx = Ce icx for some nonzero constants, A , B , C , a , b , and c for all x . Prove that a = b = c and that A + B = C . 7. A beam of monochromatic light is incident on an airglass interface (n g =1.50) with the angle of incidence at 40 o . Calculate the reflectance for light with E parallel to and with E perpendicular to the plane of incidence. 8. Light is incident on an airdiamond (n = 2.42) interface. (a) Calculate the reflectance and transmittance at normal incidence. (b) What is Brewster’s angle?...
