Mémoire sur la Loi des modifications que la réflexion imprime à la lumière polarisée. (Lu a l'Academie, le 7 janvier 1823).
[Paris] : [De l'Imprimerie de Firmin Didot Fréres .] Collection: Académie des sciences (France). ; Mémoires de l'Académie des sciences 1823 - In-4° broché, paginé 393-433 Fist printing of this importent paper in which Fresnel formulates a theory of reflection and refraction referring them to the dynamical properties of the luminiferous media and stating the two laws that bears his name, the "Sine-law" and the "Tangent-law". ---- FRESNEL apporta la preuve que la théorie ondulatoire peut seule expliquer les phénomènes d'interférences lumineuses ---- "FRESNEL succeeded fully in attaining his explicit goal, the establishment of the wave conception of light. Not long after his death scientific opinion definitely shifted in favor of waves and opened up the pathway leading to the deeper insights of Maxwell. In troad context FRESNEL's work can be viewed as the first successful assault on the theory of imponderables and a major influence on the development of nineteenth-century energetics". (DSB V).
