|Apr 16 2014||dwenzler||Mathematica||Mathematica 8||3||A really good piece of Software if you want to solve analytical problems, but not so good for numerical calculations (there i prefer matlab). One of the biggest issue for me with Mathematica is that the errormessages are real crap, as they are seldom helpfull in finding the real cause of the error. An other thing one has to get used to is the fact, that Mathematica code can be executed non linear, meaning you can execute the second line of your code, without running the first line of code before. This can be great, but it can also lead to nasty errors that can be difficult to detect.||Switzerland|

|Apr 14 2014||tkan0724||National Instruments||LabView 2013||3||Very useful to automate experimental setups. However; there are less tutorials to start programming.||Japan|

|Index of Refraction|
* Return the refractive index of a (fixed ratio) substance at a given wavelength,l (nm). Further information also may be given.
* The absolute refractive index (i.e. with resp. to vacuum) is returned, unless stated otherwise. Click here for more index of refraction terminology.
* See also our Long List of Index of Refraction Values (A-Z)... for other materials.
|Light at Interface|
Arbitrary reflection on complex material. Calculate the reflected amplitude coefficients and phase shifts for linearly polarized light at an arbitrary polarization azimuth angle, incident at an arbitrary angle on a material of arbitrary real or complex index of refraction.
Two sets of results are given: ideal zero smoothness and rough surface, with impact calculated per the Kirchoff approximation.
