Abstract
We prove a new theorem on polarized light: when un-polarized (natural) light is incident to a lossless optical element, the polarized reflected intensity equals the polarized transmitted intensity. We have confirmed the theory both through algebraic simulation and through experiments carried out on a Titanium Oxide chiral thin film.
