Question No Reflection Of Optical Photons 

Forum: Processes Involving Optical Photons
Date: 21 Jun, 2011
From: Ibrahim <Ibrahim>

Dear all,

I would like to simulate the following situation: I have scintillator box (e.g. Box1) with the following parameters:

-Length = 1mm

-Width = 1mm

-Height =2mm

-Refraction index n = 1.7

This box (Box1) should be surrounded by another material (e.g. Box2) with smaller refraction index in order to maintain the optical inside the box1.

I constructed a Box2 (1.2 mm x 1.2 mm x 2.2 mm) and I placed the Box1 inside the Box2. Now I have two medium of two different refraction indices (n1= 1.47 and n2=1.7) and thus when hen the optical photons are generated inside the box1 they must be kept inside it because of the total reflection of the optical photons at the boundary of the box1 and box2. But I see no reflection of optical photons at the boundary! I highly appreciate your help.

Kind regards

Ibrahym
