Paper Abstract

Brewster angle technique has been recently well developed for the transparent anisotropy materials. In this paper, the Brewster angle for an absorbing biaxial medium is characterized using a cubic equation. It has been shown that there are infinite possible orientations for which the Brewster angles can be measured in absorbing crystals. The numerically simulated results were compared with available experimental data of the semiconductor CdSe. This theoretical investigation leads to the numerical solution of the refractive index parameters using the Brewster angle technique in uniaxial crystals.
