Homework Help: Reflection - TE and TM phase plots

  1. Feb 3, 2015 #1
    Hello everybody,

    I want to confirm that the following plot is correct, especially with regards to how the phase changes after the critical angle.

    The professor at my school confirms its correct, but after reviewing the relations, I get an opposite shift for the TE wave.

    So can you confirm whether these plots (for n2=1.5, n1=1) are correct or not?
