Question

1.)A manganese vapor laser beam is reflected from the surface of a CD onto a wall. The brightest spot is the reflected beam at an angle equal to the angle of incidence. However, fringes are also observed. If the wall is 1.6 m from the CD, and the first bright fringe is 0.583 m from the central maximum, what is the spacing (in m) of grooves on the CD? (Assume a manganese vapor laser has a wavelength of 534 nm. Also assume that the main reflected beam incident on the wall is exactly perpendicular to the wall.)

2) An oil slick on water is 82.3 nm thick and illuminated by white light incident perpendicular to its surface. What color does the oil appear (what is the most constructively reflected wavelength, in nanometers), given its index of refraction is 1.43? (Assume the index of refraction of water is 1.33.)

Answer #1

1)

= arctan ( 0.583 / 1.6) = 20.02 degree

so,

m = d sin

d = m / sin

d = 1 * 534e-9 / sin 20.02

d = 1.56e-6 m

________________

2)

2nt = ( m + 1/2)

where m = 0,1,2....so on

2 * 1.43 * 82.3e-9 = ( m + 1/2)

first put m = 0

= 471 nm

for m = 1

= 157 nm ( this is out of visible range)

so,

**
= 471 nm**

The angle of incidence of a light beam in air onto a reflecting
surface is continuously variable. The reflected ray is found to be
completely polarized when the angle of incidence is 49.0°.
(a) What is the index of refraction of the reflecting
material?
(b) If some of the incident light (at an angle of 49.0°) passes
into the material below the surface, what is the angle of
refraction?

A pool of water is covered with a film of oil which is 256 nm
thick. For what wavelength of visible light (in air) will the
reflected light constructively interfere? The index of refraction
of the oil is 1.65. Visible light (in air) has wavelengths between
430 nm (blue) and 770 nm (red) in air. Assume that the incident
light is normal to the surface of the oil.

Interference with light We aim a red (620 nm) laser onto a small
screen that has two slits that are 0.1 mm apart. Each slit has a
width of 0.03 mm. The light coming out of the two slits is
projected onto a big screen a distance X from the slits. In the
photo on the right you can see the pattern that’s visible on the
big screen. Using a ruler, we determine that the distance between
two adjacent bright...
