Reflectance of an absorbing substrate for incident light of arbitrary polarization: appearance of a secondary maximum at oblique incidence.


The reflectance of an absorbing substrate Rtheta(?) is considered as a function of the angle of incidence ? and an incident polarization parameter theta, where cos(2)theta and sin(2)theta give the power fractions of incident radiation that are p-and s-polarized, respectively. Taking GaAs as an example, we find that at certain wavelengths (e.g., 0.248 and 0… (More)
