Problem 18P

The index of refraction of diamond is 2.42. Construct the graph analogous to Fig. 9.16 for the air/diamond interface. (Assume μ1 = μ2 = μ0.) In particular, calculate (a) the amplitudes at normal incidence, (b) Brewster’s angle, and (c) the “crossover” angle, at which the reflected and transmitted amplitudes are equal.
