1i This question deals with ideal, linear polarizers: a. With unpolarized light incident on a linear polarizer, you measure a power of 2mW after the polarizer. A second polarizer is then inserted into the system, and you then measure 0.5 mW What is the angle between the pass axes of the two polarizers? b. With 5 mW of light of an unknown polarization incident on a linear polarizer, you measure no light after the polarizer. If you put another linear polarizer before the one used above with its pass axis oriented 60Â° with respect to the other, how much power should you measure? at (b) but now putting the additional polarizer after the first rather than before c. it. Solution Given , when unpolarized light is incident on linear polarizer power is measured as 2mw let it be I O =2mW When second polarizer is inserted ,power is measured to be 0.5mW Let it be I T =0.5mW CALCULATE I O /I T = 0.5/2 =4 WE HAVE ( 1/COS 2 THETA)= I O /I T ( 1/COS 2 THETA)= 4 COS 2 THETA=1/4 COS 2 THETA= COS 2 60 Theta= 60 Degrees .
