Answer #1

Unpolarized light passes through a linear polarizer with TA at
20° from the vertical. 1. What is the polarization of the emerging
light if it passes through a QWP with SA horizontal? Use Jones
Matrices to show that the light emerging from the QWP is
elliptically polarized. 2. Determine the angle of inclination of
its major axis relative to the horizontal direction, the ratio of
its major to minor axes and its sense of rotation. 3. If the light
emerging...

Unpolarized light passes through three polarizers. The axis of
transmission of the first polarizer is vertical, the second has a
transmission axis rotated 30.0o with respect to the
first, and the third has a transmission axis rotated
75.0o relative to the first. If the initial light
intensity of the beam is Io, calculate the light
intensity after the beam passes through...

72.5° with the vertical. After the light passes through the second
polarizer, its intensity has dropped to 132 W / m2. What
is the angle between the axes of the polarizers in degrees? What
angle from the vertical is the first polarizer's axis? (Assume...

Unpolarized light with an intensity of 680 W / m2 is

degrees?
2) What angle from the vertical is the first polarizer's...

A beam of initially unpolarized light passes through a sequence
of three ideal polarizers. The angle ϕ12 between the axes of the
first and second polarizers is 21.3∘, and the angle ϕ23 between the
axes of the second and third polarizers is 54.5∘. What is the ratio
of the intensity I3 of light emerging from the third polarizer to
the intensity I0 of light incident on the first polarizer?

A beam of initially unpolarized light passes through a sequence
of three ideal polarizers. The angle ?12 between the axes of the
first and second polarizers is 21.5∘, and the angle ?23 between the
axes of the second and third polarizers is 53.3∘.
What is the ratio of the intensity ?3I3 of light emerging from
the third polarizer to the intensity ?0I0 of light incident on the
first polarizer?

Unpolarized light with an intensity of 510 W / m2 is
incident on a polarizer with an unknown axis. The light then passes
through a second polarizer with has an axis which makes an angle of
83.0° with the vertical. After the light passes through the second
polarizer, its intensity has dropped to 164 W / m2. What
is the angle between the axes of the polarizers? (Please provide an
explanation along with use of equations. Thank you.)

Thanks So much in advance!
1. Unpolarized light with an intensity of 510 W
/ m2 is incident on a polarizer with an unknown axis.

Unpolarized light passes through a succession of three
polarizers. Their orientations with respect to the vertical are 0?,
60 ?, and 45 ?, respectively.
Part A: Find the fraction of the original light intensity
remaining after first polarizer.
Part B: Find the fraction of the original light intensity
remaining after second polarizer.
Part C: Find the fraction of the original light intensity
remaining after third polarizer.

An unpolarized light passes through two polarizers whose
transmission axes are at an angle of 35o with respect to each
other. What % of incident intensity is transmitted through the
polarizers? Also, what should be the angle between the transmission
axis of the polarizers if it is desired that one-8th of the
incident intensity be transmitted? Draw the orientation of the
polarized light (E vector) after passing through each of the
polarizers. What parameter affect the transmission of the light...
