Question Re: transmission probabily in optical surface 

Forum: Processes Involving Optical Photons

Hi, I'm trying to convert the transmission probability to absorption length. Suppose the glass thickness is g, absorption length is l, transmission probability is p, then their relation is

p=exp(-g/l)

When I apply it to my program, here g=1*cm, number of photons is around 2000, for the case l=10*m which means p~1, I have the number of absorbed photons is 0, but when l=0.05*cm i.e.p~0, the number of absorbed photons is only about 60, which seems too small compared to 2000 photons!

Is my way to relate transmission probability with absorption length wrong?

Many thanks

Meiling Yu
