M7-12: BREWSTER'S ANGLE - POLAROID AND TWO REFLECTORS

m7-12am7-12bm7-12c

 

Additional Info

  • ID Code: M7-12
  • Purpose: Demonstrate polarization by reflection.
  • Description: Light from a bright point source passes through a polarizer and strikes a dielectric reflector. The mounted reflector is set to Brewster's angle, as shown in the photograph. All light reflected by the two dielectric sheets can be eliminated by rotating the polaroid in front of the lamp to only pass vertically polarized light, as seen in the center photograph above or by reflection off a second (upper) dielectric sheet shown in the photograph. Inserting a metal (conducting) sheet in place of the upper dielectric sheet (photograph at right below) shows the light reflected by both the lower dielectric and the upper conducting plates.
