When light propagates from a material with a given index of refraction into a material with a smaller index of refraction, the speed of light
What is the minimum value that the index of refraction can have?
Part A = 24.09°
Part B = 60.97°
A beam of white light is incident on the surface of a diamond at an angle θa.
For α = 45°, find the incident angle θa such that the blue light is totally internally reflected off the bottom surface.
A solar cell is designed to have a nonreflective film of a transparent material for a wavelength of 590 nm.
Will the thickness of the film depend on the index of refraction of the underlying material in the solar cell?
If nsolar > nfilm and nfilm = 1.20, what is the minimum thickness of the film?.
Repeat the calculation in Part C if nsolar < nfilm and nfilm = 1.40.
Part A = red
White light passes through a piece of crown glass and strikes an interface with air at an angle of 41.15°. The index of refraction of crown glass is 1.515 for red light and 1.523 for blue light.
Which color(s) of light will be refracted out into the air?
