Section 3: The Propagation of Light

Have you ever wondered why light can pass through some materials such as glass, but is absorbed by any non-transparent materials? Or what makes things reflective? Or how fiber optics communication networks work?! All of these questions will be answered in the following section, as we will be focusing on light propagation at interfaces and waveguides.
