Why is it that the images formed by total internal reflection are brighter than those formed by mirrors or lenses?
Asked by Topperlearning User | 4th Jun, 2014, 01:23: PM
The images formed by total internal reflection are brighter than those formed by mirrors or lenses because in total internal reflection 100% of incident light is reflected back into the same medium without the loss of intensity while in reflection from mirrors and lenses there is always some loss of intensity.
