Unpolarised light is incident from air on a plane surface of a material of refractive index μ. At a particular angle of incidence i, it is found that the reflected and refracted rays are perpendicular to each other. Which of the following options is correct for this situation?


When reflected light and refracted light are perpendicular, reflected light is polarised with electric field vector perpendicular to the plane of incidence. Also, tan i=μ (Brewster angle)
