Hi I’M In A Phy 300 Waes And Optics Course And I’M Working On Questions 2 8 And 2 10 However For Problem 2 8
0, 6 =
(b) $ = 0, b=2
(c) b = 1/2, b =-1
(d) = 1/4, b = 1
2.7 Write down the Jones vectors for the waves in Problem 2.6.
2.8 Describe the type of polarization of the waves whose Jones
Find the orthogonal Jones vectors to each of the above and
describe their polarizations.
2.9 The general case is represented by the Jones vector
Show that this represents elliptically polarized light in which
the major axis of the ellipse makes an angle
2AB cos A
A2 – B2
with the x axis.
2.10 Show by means of the Jones calculus that circularly polarized
light is produced by sending light through a linear polarizer and
a quarter-wave plate only in the right order.Science
