Hey -- I just noticed we've run out of textbook.

Law of Reflection Law of Refraction (Snell's Law) Index of Refraction Critical Angle Total Internal Reflection

Dispersion Thin lenses Positive, Converging, Bi-Convex lens Negative, Diverging, Bi-Concave lens Ray tracing

Real (camera) and virtual (magnifying glass) images from a Bi-Convex lens Images and Objects

Constructive interference between 2 waves Destructive interference between 2 waves

Creating an anti-reflective coating on a lens: (1) 2nd reflection goes through round-trip = twice thickness of coating

(2) need to calculate wavelength of light in the coating material

(3) have to account for 0, 1 or 2 phase shifts due to the ordering of the index of refractions.
