(a) Using the boundary condition on the tangential electric field at x = 0 and x = d, find two equations relating the unknowns rn , A, B , and tn . (b) Find the tangential magnetic fields using Faraday’s Law: ∂ Bz ∂ Ey =− ∂x ∂t 3 6.007 Spring 2011 Problem Set 8: Electromagnetic Waves at Boundaries Then, using the boundary condition on the tangential magnetic field at x = 0 and x = d, find two equations relating the unknowns rn , A, B , and tn . x (c) Now that you have four equations and four unknowns, set up a matrix equation in the form of Mx = C , where: ⎛ ⎞ rn ⎜A⎟ ⎟ x =⎜ ⎝B⎠ tn With this matrix equation, you could solve for the complex amplitudes rn , A, B , and tn . We’ll see this again when we cover tunneling in quantum mechanics. 2 (d) Using MATLAB, find the transmitted intensity, |tn | , if the incident angle in region I (glass) is θ = 45◦ , the index of glass is n1 = 1.5, the index of air is n2 = 1, the free space wavelength is λ0 = 640 nm, and the air gap is d = 100 nm. You’ll need to numerically solve the system of equations represented by your matrix in (c) using MATLAB. To find the inverse of M, use the MATLAB function inv() (e.g., x=inv(M)*C). Problem 8.3 – Thin Film Interference In class we have seen the Fresnel equations for reflected and transmitted wave amplitudes. These equations assume that the materials are semi-infinite (that they continue for ever). If we look at reflections from sections of materials with finite thickness we have to take into account interference phenomenon in addition to the transmission/reflection amplitudes for semi-infinite material boundaries. In this problem we will look at the reflection of light from a film of oil on top of water. See the diagram below. Geometry for Problem 8.4, not drawn to scale. There can be a peak in reflected intensity only if the difference in phase gained between path AB and path ACD is equal to some i...
