In optics what do Tp and Ts stand for and what are they?

I believe Tp is the highest amount of light transmitted and Ts is the Lowest amount of light transmitted though a material.
but I cannot find that much information on these terms.

You'll need to tell us more about the context for a good answer. But I thought of reflection/transmission coefficients because of the subscripts. If so, it's about the polarization components of the wave w.r.t. the surface orientation.
