Assuming an ideal single frequency plane wave, we can determine the angle of retraction for the light beam.
But the more I make my pulse shorter, the less certain I am in the frequency and thus the angle of refraction, angle of total reflection and Brewsters angle.
Is this true?
If i target a pulsating laser on the glas prism and observe the leaser dot on the wall (in slow motion) does that mean that the angle of refraction will be different for each individual pulse or that the the whole pulse will be more spreadout?
In other words, would the laser dot on the wall dance around randomly or just be much more spreadout compared to a CW?
