Question Angle of Entry Optics 

Keywords: Angle of Entry OpticalPhoton
Forum: Geometry
Date: 14 Jul, 2006
From: Ryan <Ryan>

I am modeling a detector with many reflecting rods and need be able to reflect the photons at a high rate. I have specified the properties of aluminium and the reflection rates are correct when the angle is perpindicular. However, the rate is the same even on an entry angle of a few degrees. I know this since I tested it by shooting a thousand photons at a sensitive detector and it outputs the number of reflections. I have tried going with just polished, glisur, and not identifing a optical surface. The first two result in no relfections at all, the third gives the same result. How do I make the rate increase as the angle of entry decreases? Or is my test module flawed in some way?
