1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Unpolarized light of intensity I0 is transmitted through a dichroic polarizer with thickness 1mm. Calculate the transmitted intensity when the absorption coefficients for the two polarizations are α|| = 100cm −1 and α ⊥ = 5cm −1 2. Relevant equations Is it possible to say what would be transmitted intesity for unpolarized light from this info? 3. The attempt at a solution Is it valid to say that α(unpolarized) = α || + α ⊥?
