On decrit les conditions du materiau qui determinent quelle polarisation incidente a un angle de Brewster et on montre que l'angle de Brewster ne peut pas exister simultanement pour les deux polarisations incidentes sauf sous incidence normale et rasante

All-angle Brewster effect observed on a terahertz metasurface
In physics, the Brewster effect initially refers to a reflectionless transmission of a transverse-magnetic wave that impinges on an interface separating two different regular media at a particular
Conical diffraction from index-matched gratings
We study the diffraction of electromagnetic waves from a periodically corrugated interface between two index-matched dielectrics in the general case of oblique incidence. We show that the eigenmodes
Generalized Brewster effect in dielectric metasurfaces
It is theoretically predicted that a properly designed all-dielectric metasurface exhibits a generalized Brewster's effect potentially for any angle, wavelength and polarization of choice, and experimentally demonstrated for an array of silicon nanodisks at visible wavelengths.
Reflection of electromagnetic waves at the corrugated boundary between permeable dielectrics
The reflectivity of periodically corrugated boundaries between non-lossy, isotropic dielectrics with different magnetic permeabilities is studied in a regime where the grating supports only a
Magnetic effects on the reflection of electromagnetic waves at isotropic–uniaxial interfaces
The ellipsometric properties of flat boundaries between isotropic and uniaxial materials with different magnetic permeabilities are studied for three particular orientations of the optic axis. The
Propagation and excitation of eigenmodes at isotropic¿gyroelectromagnetic index-matched interfaces
We study the relation between the excitation of eigenmodes at isotropic-gyroelectromagnetic flat interfaces under index-matching condition and the singular behaviour of the reflectivity at grazing
Reflection of electromagnetic waves from index-matched surfaces
The connection between the eigenmodes supported by a flat interface between two permeable, index-matched media and the singular behavior of its reflectivity at grazing incidence has been
Generalized Brewster effect in aluminum-doped ZnO nanopillars
Generalized Brewster effect is a phenomenon where light of both TE (S-) and TM (P-) polarization transmit through a surface with no reflection for a particular incident angle. Generalized Brewster
Generalized Brewster-Kerker effect in dielectric metasurfaces
Polarization is one of the key properties defining the state of light. It was discovered in the early 19 century by Brewster, among others, while studying light reflected from materials at different
Scattering of electromagnetic waves at the corrugated interface between index-matched media
Abstract We consider the scattering of s- and p-polarized electromagnetic waves incident onto the periodically corrugated boundary between index-matched media. First we find the eigenmodes supported


Fresnel reflection and transmission at a planar boundary from media of equal refractive indices (A)
Some interesting properties of the Fresnel equations governing the reflection of plane electromagnetic waves at an interface between differing media are presented. The phenomenon of reflection that
Graphical approach to Fresnel’s equations for reflection and refraction of light
A coordinate‐free approach to Fresnel’s equations is developed. The method applies to arbitrary transparent media, with light of either s or p polarization, at any angle of incidence. A graphical
Electromagnetic scattering by magnetic spheres
A number of unusual electromagnetic scattering effects for magnetic spheres are described. When ∊ = μ, the backscatter gain is zero; the scattered radiation is polarized in the same sense as the
Determination of the molecular orientation at the free surface of liquid crystals from brewster angle measurements
Abstract In this paper we describe a new method to determine the orientation of the director at the free surface of nematic liquid crystals. Such method is based on a measure of the Brewster angle.
