Questions Students Ask: Why Not Bend Light with an Electric Field?
Van Heuvelen, Alan
Physics Teacher, v21 n7 p479 Oct 1983
In response to a question, "Why not use a magnetic or electric field to deflect light?," reviews the relation between electric charge and electric/magnetic fields. Discusses the Faraday effect, (describing matter as an intermediary in the rotation of the place of polarization) and other apparent interactions of light with electric/magnetic fields. (JM)
