HW 3 Solution θ c θ c θ 2 Optics axis 1) Notice that is the index for electric field parallel to optic axis and is the index for electric field perpendicular to the optic axis. They have no connection with polarization (electric field direction) of the wave or the boundaries between materials, e.g. air and glass etc. Since (where is the index of the Canada balsam) and for totally internal refraction , only the electric field perpendicular to the optic axis will satisfy the condition, i.e. p-polarized wave (TM) will be totally internal reflected according to the diagram. The critical angle in this case is: || n n || n n n m > > m n out in n n > ° = = = 25 . 68 ) ( sin sin 1 n n n n m c in out c θ θ The s-polarized wave (TE) will transmit to the Canada balsam with an angle of

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
