A Michelson interferometer, as shown in Fig. 37-18, can be used to measure small distance. The beam splitter partially reflects and partially transmits monochromatic light of wavelength λ from the source S. One mirror M1 is fixed and another M2 is movable. The light rays reaching the eye from each mirror differ, causing constructive and destructive interference patterns to move across the scope as the mirror M2 is moved a distance x. Show that his distance is given by λ x=m 2 where m is the number of dark fringes that cross an indicator line on the scope as the M2 mirror moves a distance x. x The difference in path lengths for each ray of light will be the distance x and back, or 2x, Source.S M1 Thus, there is constructive interference when: Fixed 2x = mλ m = 0, 1, 2, . . . mirror λ Observer Thus, x=m m = 0, 1, 2, . . . 2 37-29.

On the screen, what is the distance between the first order blue line (400 nm) and the first order red line (680 nm). How many complete spectra (400-700 nm) are possible for these conditions? (a) When white light passes through a prism, the blue light bends more than the red light since the angle of refraction is less for longer wavelengths. (See Fig. 35-8 in text.) The reverse is true for gratings. The longer wavelengths are deviated more. 1 (b) d = = 2.00 x 10-3 mm; d = 2.00 x 10-6 m 500 lines/mm θ nλr (1)(680 x 10-9 m) 1m d sin θ = nλ ; sin θ r = = ; θr = 19.90 d 2.00 x 10-6 m nλb (1)(400 x 10-9 m) Red Blue d sin θ = nλ ; sin θ b = = ; θ7 = 11.50 d 2.00 x 10-6 m y tan θ = ; y = x tan θ ; ∆y = yr − yb = x tan θ r − x tan θ b x ∆y = (1 m) tan 19.90– (1 m) tan 11.50; ∆y = 15.9 cm (c) The maximum number of complete spectra is found by setting θ = 900 for red line. d sin 900 2.00 x 10-6 m d sin θ = nλ ; n= = ; n = 2.86 λ 700 x 10-9 m Therefore, only two complete spectra are possible for this grating. 263

Assume that the pupil of a person’s eye has a diameter of 5 mm and that the light has an average wavelength of 640 nm. At night, on a long straight highway, how far away can the two tail lights be resolved? Suppose you squint your eyes forming a slit where the limiting angle changes from θ0 = 1.22 λ/D to θ0 = λ/d.

The intensity of unpolarized light is reduced by one-half when it passes through a polarizer. In the case of the plane-polarized light reaching the analyzer, the intensity I of the transmitted beam is given by I = I 0 cos2 θ where I0 is the maximum intensity transmitted and θ is the angle through which the analyzer has been rotated. Consider three Polaroid plates stacked so that the axis of each is turned 300 with respect to the spreading plate. By what percentage will the incident light be reduced in intensity when it passes through all three plates? The first plate transmits ½ of the incident light intensity. Each succeeding plate transmits a vector resolution at angle 300 and transmits a fraction, cos 300 = 0.866, of the amplitude, or (cos 300)2 of the intensity. Since cos 300 = 0.866, (cos 300)2 = 0.75. Thus the intensity of the stack is: (0.5)(0.75)(0.75 = 0.281 or 28.1% 264
