Inhibited reflection in uniaxial crystals.


When an ordinary or extraordinary ray that propagates through a birefringent crystal is reflected it gives rise to two reflected rays whose directions may be calculated with formulas similar to Snell's law for refraction. When the reflection angle is greater than the incidence angle there is a critical angle for which the reflected ray is grazing, and for… (More)
