From the early floor and polished prism points of glass lighthouse Fresnel lenses to fashionable microreplicated versatile Fresnel lenses for sun concentrators, new functions of prismatic optical elements for gentle keep watch over are continually being constructed. moreover, concepts using unmarried and compound prismatic and reflective optical parts are rising within the fields of metrology, polarization regulate, projection structures, illumination, and reveal lights, between others.
Like several classical Greek texts on technology, Euclid's works on optics firstly got here to the West typically via medieval Arabic texts and commentaries. whereas a number of Greek types of the Optika have been found and translated as early because the 16th century, checking out what could have been Euclid's unique has now not been effortless.

2), where the value of P at a given position r depends only on the value of E at the same point]. In fact, if the polarization vector P at a given instant t and position r is determined by the value of E at the same point at time t — At, during the time interval Δί the electric disturbance will travel a distance v At (v being its typical velocity); as a consequence, the polarization P and r will also be influenced by the value of the electric field at time t and at adjacent positions r' such that |r' — r| = vAt.

6). According to the previous results, the field amplitude along a ray depends on the way in which da or, equivalently, V 2 5 varies. Thus, the knowledge of the trajectory of a single ray is not sufficient to deduce the amplitude A0, but it is necessary to determine all the rays in the proximity of the reference trajectory. ionization F layer caustic ground (a) Fig. 6.

Note on the left the profile of the index of refraction, which decreases in correspondence to the ionospheric plasma, as by Eq.
