Question default optical surface characteristics betwen two optical media 

Forum: Processes Involving Optical Photons

Hi,

Please correct me if I am wrong, but I think it is not mandatory to specify the optical properties of the boundary between two optical media, i.e. media with a defined refractive index.

If this is the case then what are the default properties of the optical boundary between these optical media?

I did not check the code but from what I can see the boundary properties defaults to the following:

Type --> dielectric_dielectric

Model --> unified

Finish --> polished

and probably only the spike specular component is taken into account (polished surface).

Thank you in advance for you help.

Dragos
