We human beings are an extremely obsessive lot and it isn’t just about one thing or particular person but many that need to be looked into. If there is anything that humans are most obsessed about, it is themselves and no other.
Yes, that’s right, human beings are quite self obsessed if you look at it from a general point because everyone wants to see themselves far ahead of others in the race of life and climb to the topmost position of the social ladder, which is nothing wrong as long as they do it within the bounds of morality and hard work.
They are also obsessed with their looks and want to become the handsomest/prettiest person in the world which is why you would see most of them looking at their features in the mirror from time to time, which brings us to the topic of mirrors but they aren’t the regular ones.
New Age Device
Everyone is aware about the term mirror and what it looks like but you can’t say the same about dielectric mirror because it isn’t as mentioned in discussions as its more erstwhile counterpart and for obvious reasons.
A dielectric mirror has many thick and thin layers across its surface and we need to understand the meaning of dielectric to understand the entire concept better so that our vision is clear.
It cannot be classified as simply a mirror made from glass in true sense because it doesn’t fall into that category as it also consists of optical lens that make up most of its layers but the reflection is quite blurred compared to what appears in a normal mirror because the reflection is quite clear in that one.
It is the optical coating surrounding the various layers of the dielectric mirror is what differentiates it from a normal one but this new age device cannot be understood by everyone as it is a complex chapter in the field of mirror physics.
Dielectric mirrors are a phenomenon that functions purely on the basis of light interference where two waves collide with each other and superimpose to form a much bigger wave of the amplitude that is more of a constructive interference among the various collisions that keep taking place in this field.
Now it is important to mention here that various designs have a different structural mode that is complicated based on the optical mechanism that makes it an interesting phenomenon to behold as one rarely gets to view it on a regular basis.
Light interference is quite unique where the wavelength of anything depends on how fast the light travels and one whose speed is faster than that of sound, which is why scientists are still researching over it in the hopes of unveiling more about this mystery.
The waves are derived from complicated mathematical formulae and calculations where two waves are added to find the sine wave equation of the amplitude in question where trigonometry also comes into play.
To understand the concept of dielectric mirrors would take a long time as one needs patience and an open mind to determine various characteristics.
