Cambio del estado de polarización por reflexión en un espejo elíptico

O.G. Rodríguez-Herrera, M. Rosete-Aguilar, N.C. Bruce

Abstract


The analysis of the change in the polarization state due to reflection of light on a surface, is not always trivial. This change will depend on the properties of the material, the shape of the surface and the angle of incidence. In this paper we present an example of this kind of analysis for an elliptical mirror, showing the importance of the shape and the material of the surface.
