Easy to derive on the basis of:
Huygens’ principle: every point on a wavefront may be regarded as a
secondary source of wavelets
Fermat’s principle:
the path a beam of light takes between two points is
the one which is traversed in the least time
Today, we’ll show how they can be derived
when we consider light to be an
electromagnetic wave
E and B are harmonic

boundary point
At the boundary point:
phases of the three waves must be equal:
 
 
 
(k i  r   i t )  (k r  r   r t )  (k t  r   t t )
true for any boundary
point and time,

so let’s take r  0
  i t   r t   t t
or
i  r  t
hence, the frequencies are equal
and if we now consider t  0
 
 
 
ki r  k r r  kt r
which means all three propagation vectors lie
in the same plane
Reflection
 
 
 
ki r  k r r  kt r
focus on first two terms:
 
 
ki r  k r r
k i r sin  i  k r r sin  r
incident and reflected beams travel in
same medium; same l
ki  kr
hence we arrive at the law of reflection:
i  r
Refraction
 
 
 
ki r  k r r  kt r
now the last two terms:
 
 
k r r  kt r
k r r sin  r  k t r sin  t
reflected and transmitted beams travel in
different media (same frequencies;
different wavelengths!):
k r   / v r  n1 / c
k t   / v t  n 2 / c
which leads to the law of refraction:
n1 sin  r  n 2 sin  t

Brewster’s angle for internal and external reflections
at p, TM is perfectly transmitted
with no reflection
at Brewster’s angle, “s skips and p plunges”
s-polarized light (TE) skips off the surface; p-polarized light (TM) plunges in
Brewster’s angle

Exploiting the phase difference
circular polarization
-consists of equal amplitude components of
TE and TM linear polarized light, with
phases that differ by ±p/2
-can be created by internal reflections in a
Fresnel rhomb
each reflection
produces a π/4
phase delay
