In the present article, the reflection and transmission of plane waves at the boundary of thermally conducting micropolar elastic media with two temperatures is studied. The theory of thermoelasticity with and without energy dissipation is used to investigate the problem. The expressions for amplitudes ratios of reflected and transmitted waves at different angles of incident wave are obtained. Dissipation of energy and two temperature effects on these amplitude ratios with angle of incidence are depicted graphically. Some special and particular cases are also deduced.
