Polarizing Angle Formula

Given here is the polarization angle formula to calculate the Brewster's Angle, known as the angle of incidence. The polarizing angle defines the angle at which, the light with a particular polarization is perfectly transmitted through a transparent dielectric surface, with no reflection. Below given Brewster angle formula can be calculated using Fresnel equations, given as θB = arctan (n2/n1) where n1 is the refractive index of the incident medium, and n2 is the index of the other medium.

θpolarizing = arctan(nt/ni)


θpolarizing = Brewster Angle / Polarization Angle
ni = Light from a Medium of Index
nt = Light Incident upon a Medium of Index
