Applications of Total Internal Reflection Fibre OpticsTotal internal reflection is also used in optical fibres. An optical fibre consists of an inner core of high refractive index glass and surrounded by an outer cladding of lower refractive index. When light is introduced into the inner core at one end, it will propagate along the fibre in a zigzag path undergoing … [Read more...] about Applications of Total Internal Reflection
Total Internal Reflection
What do you mean by Total Internal Reflection?The inside surface of water can act like a perfect mirror as shown in Figure.This happens when the light rays strike the surface of the water in such a way that it reflects back into the water. The light rays are said to be reflected internally. This phenomenon is known as total internal reflection. It occurs only … [Read more...] about What do you mean by Total Internal Reflection?
