Abstract

The electric polarization of an interface between an isotropic medium and a uniaxial transparent crystal is analyzed. The case in which the optical axis lies on the incidence plane is considered. When the incidence angle is Brewster’s, angle is shown that the effective electric polarization of the interface has the direction of the reflected ray.
