11 Nature of Light In this example we have introduced the notion of a detector and the energy and power carried by an electromagnetic wave. The energy carried by an EM wave can be specified in many related ways: the power, power per unit area, and power per unit solid angle, for example. To quantify these characteristics of EM waves, we turn to the topic of radiometry. 4 RADIOMETRY Radiometry is the science of measurement of electromagnetic radiation. In this discussion we are content to present briefly the radiometric quantities or physical terms used to characterize the energy content of radiation.

Mathematically, we are required to minimize the total time, t = AO OB + yi yt where yi and yt are the velocities of light in the incident and transmitting media, respectively. Employing the Pythagorean theorem and the distances defined in Figure 6, we have AO = 2a2 + x2 and OB = 2b2 + 1c - x22 , so that t = 2b2 + 1c - x22 2a2 + x2 + yi yt Since other choices of path change the position of point O and therefore the distance x, we can minimize the time by setting dt>dx = 0: x c - x dt = = 0 2 2 2 dx yi 2a + x yt 2b + 1c - x22 Again from Figure 6, in the two right triangles containing AO and OB, respectively, the angles of incidence and refraction can be conveniently A ui a ni nt O x b c ut B Figure 6 Construction to prove the law of refraction from Fermat’s principle.

The image S¿ cannot be projected on a screen as in the case of a real image. All points of an extended object, such as the arrow in Figure 8b, are imaged by a plane mirror in similar fashion: Each object point has its image point along its normal to the mirror surface and as far below the reflecting surface as the object point lies above the surface. Note that the image position does not depend on the position of the eye. Further, the construction of Figure 8b makes clear that the image size is identical with the object size, giving a magnification of unity.
