|Index of Refraction|
* Return the refractive index
of a (fixed ratio) substance at a given wavelength,
l (nm). Further information also may be given.
* The absolute refractive index (i.e. with resp. to vacuum) is returned, unless stated otherwise. Click here for more index of refraction terminology.
* See also our Long List of Index of Refraction Values (A-Z)... for other materials.
|Light at Interface|
Arbitrary reflection on complex material. Calculate the reflected amplitude coefficients and phase shifts for linearly polarized light at an arbitrary polarization azimuth angle, incident at an arbitrary angle on a material of arbitrary real or complex index of refraction.
Two sets of results are given: ideal zero smoothness and rough surface, with impact calculated per the Kirchoff approximation.
