Electromagnetic Waves
Characteristics of Light Electromagnetic Waves An electromagnetic wave is a wave that consists of oscillating electric and magnetic fields, which radiate outward from the source at the speed of light. Light is a form of electromagnetic radiation. The electromagnetic spectrum includes more than visible light.

Characteristics of Light The Electromagnetic Spectrum

Electromagnetic Waves, continued
Characteristics of Light Electromagnetic Waves, continued Electromagnetic waves vary depending on frequency and wavelength. All electromagnetic waves move at the speed of light. The speed of light, c, equals c = 3.00  108 m/s Wave Speed Equation c = fl speed of light = frequency  wavelength

Electromagnetic Waves, continued
Characteristics of Light Electromagnetic Waves, continued Waves can be approximated as rays. This approach to analyzing waves is called Huygens’ principle. Lines drawn tangent to the crest (or trough) of a wave are called wave fronts. In the ray approximation, lines, called rays, are drawn perpendicular to the wave front.

Electromagnetic Waves, continued
Characteristics of Light Electromagnetic Waves, continued Illuminance decreases as the square of the distance from the source. The rate at which light is emitted from a source is called the luminous flux and is measured in lumens (lm).

Flat Mirrors Reflection of Light Reflection is the change in direction of an electromagnetic wave at a surface that causes it to move away from the surface. The texture of a surface affects how it reflects light. Diffuse reflection is reflection from a rough, texture surface such as paper or unpolished wood. Specular reflection is reflection from a smooth, shiny surface such as a mirror or a water surface.

Reflection of Light, continued
Flat Mirrors Reflection of Light, continued The angle of incidence is the the angle between a ray that strikes a surface and the line perpendicular to that surface at the point of contact. The angle of reflection is the angle formed by the line perpendicular to a surface and the direction in which a reflected ray moves. The angle of incidence and the angle of reflection are always equal.

Flat Mirrors Flat Mirrors Flat mirrors form virtual images that are the same distance from the mirror’s surface as the object is. The image formed by rays that appear to come from the image point behind the mirror—but never really do—is called a virtual image. A virtual image can never be displayed on a physical surface.

Concave Spherical Mirrors
Curved Mirrors Concave Spherical Mirrors A concave spherical mirror is a mirror whose reflecting surface is a segment of the inside of a sphere. Concave mirrors can be used to form real images. A real image is an image formed when rays of light actually pass through a point on the image. Real images can be projected onto a screen.

All parallel rays converge at the focal point of a parabolic mirror.

Extended Response 14. Explain how you can use a piece of polarizing plastic to determine if light is linearly polarized.

Extended Response, continued
14. Explain how you can use a piece of polarizing plastic to determine if light is linearly polarized. Answer: Polarized light will pass through the plastic when the transmission axis of the plastic is parallel with the light’s plane of polarization. Rotating the plastic 90º will prevent the polarized light from passing through the plastic, so the plastic appears dark. If light is not linearly polarized, rotating the plastic 90º will have no effect on the light’s intensity.

Refraction Refraction of Light The bending of light as it travels from one medium to another is call refraction. As a light ray travels from one medium into another medium where its speed is different, the light ray will change its direction unless it travels along the normal.

Refraction of Light, continued
Refraction can be explained in terms of the wave model of light. The speed of light in a vacuum, c, is an important constant used by physicists. Inside of other mediums, such as air, glass, or water, the speed of light is different and is usually less than c.

Refraction The Law of Refraction The index of refraction for a substance is the ratio of the speed of light in a vacuum to the speed of light in that substance.

Indices of Refraction for Various Substances

The Law of Refraction, continued
When light passes from a medium with a smaller index of refraction to one with a larger index of refraction (like from air to glass), the ray bends toward the normal. When light passes from a medium with a larger index of refraction to one with a smaller index of refraction (like from glass to air), the ray bends away from the normal.

Eyeglasses and Contact Lenses
Thin Lenses Eyeglasses and Contact Lenses The transparent front of the eye, called the cornea, acts like a lens. The eye also contains a crystalline lens, that further refracts light toward the light-sensitive back of the eye, called the retina. Two conditions, myopia and hyperopia, occur when light is not focused properly retina. Converging and diverging lenses can be used to correct these conditions.

Total Internal Reflection
Optical Phenomena Total Internal Reflection Total internal reflection can occur when light moves along a path from a medium with a higher index of refraction to one with a lower index of refraction. At the critical angle, refracted light makes an angle of 90º with the normal. Above the critical angle, total internal reflection occurs and light is completely reflected within a substance.

14. Explain how light passing through raindrops is reflected and dispersed so that a rainbow is produced. Include in your explanation why the lower band of the rainbow is violet and the outer band is red. Answer: There are three effects—a refraction, a reflection, and then a final refraction. The light of each wavelength in the visible spectrum is refracted by a different amount: the red light undergoes the least amount of refraction, and the violet light undergoes the most. (Answer continued on next slide.)

Extended Response, continued
14. Answer (continued): At the far side of the raindrop, the light is internally reflected and undergoes refraction again when it leaves the front side of the raindrop. Because of the internal reflection, the final dispersion of the light is such that the violet light makes an angle of 40° with the incident ray, and the red light makes an angle of 42° with the incident ray. For an observer, the upper edge of the rainbow has the color of the light that bends farthest from the incident light, so the outer band of the rainbow is red. Similarly, the lower edge has the color of the light that bends least from the incident light, so the inner band is violet. The net effect is that the ray that is refracted the most ends up closest to the incident light, that is, the smallest angular displacement.

Interference Combining Light Waves Interference takes place only between waves with the same wavelength. A light source that has a single wavelength is called monochromatic. In constructive interference, component waves combine to form a resultant wave with the same wavelength but with an amplitude that is greater than the either of the individual component waves. In the case of destructive interference, the resultant amplitude is less than the amplitude of the larger component wave.

Interference Between Transverse Waves

Combining Light Waves, continued
Interference Combining Light Waves, continued Waves must have a constant phase difference for interference to be observed. Coherence is the correlation between the phases of two or more waves. Sources of light for which the phase difference is constant are said to be coherent. Sources of light for which the phase difference is not constant are said to be incoherent.

Incoherent and Coherent Light
Lasers Incoherent and Coherent Light

Demonstrating Interference
Interference can be demonstrated by passing light through two narrow parallel slits. If monochromatic light is used, the light from the two slits produces a series of bright and dark parallel bands, or fringes, on a viewing screen.

Conditions for Interference of Light Waves

Demonstrating Interference, continued
The location of interference fringes can be predicted. The path difference is the difference in the distance traveled by two beams when they are scattered in the same direction from different points. The path difference equals dsinq.

Demonstrating Interference, continued
The number assigned to interference fringes with respect to the central bright fringe is called the order number. The order number is represented by the symbol m. The central bright fringe at q = 0 (m = 0) is called the zeroth-order maximum, or the central maximum. The first maximum on either side of the central maximum (m = 1) is called the first-order maximum.

The Bending of Light Waves
Diffraction The Bending of Light Waves Diffraction is a change in the direction of a wave when the wave encounters an obstacle, an opening, or an edge. Light waves form a diffraction pattern by passing around an obstacle or bending through a slit and interfering with each other. Wavelets (as in Huygens’ principle) in a wave front interfere with each other.

Diffraction Diffraction Gratings A diffraction grating uses diffraction and interference to disperse light into its component colors. The position of a maximum depends on the separation of the slits in the grating, d, the order of the maximum m,, and the wavelength of the light, l. d sin q = ±ml m = 0, 1, 2, 3, …

Diffraction and Instrument Resolution
The ability of an optical system to distinguish between closely spaced objects is limited by the wave nature of light. Resolving power is the ability of an optical instrument to form separate images of two objects that are close together. Resolution depends on wavelength and aperture width.

13. Telescopes that orbit Earth provide better images of distant objects because orbiting telescopes are more able to operate near their theoretical resolution than telescopes on Earth. The orbiting telescopes needed to provide high resolution in the visible part of the spectrum are much larger than the orbiting telescopes that provide similar images in the ultraviolet and X-ray portion of the spectrum. Explain why the sizes must vary.

Short Response, continued
13. (See previous slide for question.) Answer: The resolving power of a telescope depends on the ratio of the wavelength to the diameter of the aperture. Telescopes using longer wavelength radiation (visible light) must be larger than those using shorter wavelengths (ultraviolet, X ray) to achieve the same resolving power.
