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 The s-polarized wave (TE) will transmit to the Canada balsam with an angle of
