Uniform plane wave traveling in the +z direction and normally incident on a medium interface at z=0. Only the electric field intensity is shown.
The top figure shows the incident (blue), reflected (red), incident+reflected (brown) and transmitted field in both media. In the bottom figure, the standing wave patterns created in both media are shown.
