Tangential E must be Continuous
Dr. S. Cruz Tangential E must be Continuous From this we know that frequency is a property of the wave. So is color. So 700nm is not always red!! Give example of bathing suit. Wave incidence at oblique angles

Snell Law Equating, we get or
Dr. S. Cruz Snell Law Equating, we get or where, the index of refraction of a medium, ni , is defined as the ratio of the phase velocity in free space (c) to the phase velocity in the medium. Wave incidence at oblique angles

Critical angle, qc …All is reflected
Dr. S. Cruz Critical angle, qc …All is reflected When qt =90o, the refracted wave flows along the surface and no energy is transmitted into medium 2. The value of the angle of incidence corresponding to this is called critical angle, qc. If qi > qc, the incident wave is totally reflected. Wave incidence at oblique angles

Dr. S. Cruz Fiber optics Light can be guided with total reflections through thin dielectric rods made of glass or transparent plastic, known as optical fibers. The only power lost is due to reflections at the input and output ends and absorption by the fiber material (not perfect dielectric). Wave incidence at oblique angles

Dr. S. Cruz Optical fibers have cylindrical fiber core with index of refraction nf, surrounded by another cylinder of lower, nc < nf , called a cladding. For total reflection: [Figure from Ulaby, 1999] Acceptance angle Wave incidence at oblique angles
