The spin Hall effect (SHE) of light in layered nanostructures is investigated theoretically in this paper. A general propagation model describing the spin-dependent transverse splitting of wave packets in the SHE of light is established from the viewpoint of classical electrodynamics. We show that the transverse displacement of the wave-packet centroid can be tuned to either a negative or a positive value, or even zero, by just adjusting the structure parameters, suggesting that the SHE of…

The maximum transverse shift of tunneling light through a FTIR structure with identical HMM can be significantly enlarged by more than three times which reaches −38 μm without any amplification method.

Recent advances in the spin Hall effect of light

This review, based on the viewpoint of the geometric phase gradient, gives a detailed presentation of the recent advances in the SHE of light and its applications in precision metrology and future spin-based photonics.

Enhanced spin Hall effect of reflected light with guided-wave surface plasmon resonance

The photonic spin Hall effect (SHE) has been intensively studied and widely applied, especially in spin photonics. However, the SHE is weak and is difficult to detect directly. In this paper, we

The photonic spin Hall effect (SHE) provides an effective way to manipulate the spin-polarized photons. However, the spin-dependent splitting is very tiny due to the weak spin–orbit coupling, and
