Light Reflection Applications


Reflection of light is present in all that we see, as our eyes are able to capture images due to sunlight or other sources diffusedly reflected by objects; In this way, mirrors and the formation of images through them can be studied. This knowledge was fundamental to the implementation of various equipment we use today, such as projectors, overhead projectors, binoculars and mirrors that enlarge or reduce images.

Reflection is also present in the transmission of information through optical fiber, which has been explored more and more with the advancement of computing and especially with the increasingly large diffusion of the internet.
