Abstract

The reflection coefficient is calculated for radiation incident normally on a nonabsorbing, optically inhomogeneous, plane parallel layer bounded on either side by nonabsorbing semi-infinite media. The theory is applied to determine the reflectance of a layer in which the index of refraction varies nearly linearly with the thickness.
