The amplification of the relative Fresnel (Goos–Hänchen) phase by an appropriate number of total internal reflections and the choice of favorable incidence angles allow to observe full oscillations in the power of a DPSS laser transmitted through sequential BK7 blocks. The experimental results confirm the theoretical predictions. The optical apparatus used in this letter can be seen as a new type of two-phase ellipsometric system where the phase of the complex refractive index is replaced by… 

The quaternionic Goos–Hänchen shift

We investigate the lateral displacement of electronic waves when partially and totally reflected by a quaternionic potential. Following the analogy between Quantum Mechanics and Optics, we introduce

Sensitivity Enhancement of Hybrid Two-Dimensional Nanomaterials-Based Surface Plasmon Resonance Biosensor

In this work, we designed structures based on copper nanosubstrate with graphene and two-dimensional transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDC) in order to achieve an ultrasensitive surface plasmon

High-Sensitivity Goos-Hänchen Shifts Sensor Based on BlueP-TMDCs-Graphene Heterostructure

A novel Goos–Hänchen (GH) shift sensing scheme based on blue phosphorene (BlueP)/transition metal dichalogenides (TMDCs) and graphene structure is proposed, which can be used in various chemical, biomedical and optical sensing fields.

Lateral shifts and angular deviations of Gaussian optical beams reflected by and transmitted through dielectric blocks: a tutorial review

ABSTRACT In this work, we summarize the current state of understanding of lateral displacement and angular deviations of an optical beam propagating through dielectric blocks. In part I, the



Oscillatory behavior of light in the composite Goos-Hänchen shift

For incidence in the critical region, the propagation of gaussian lasers through triangular dielectric blocks is characterized by the joint action of angular deviations and lateral displacements.

Direct measurement of the composite Goos-Hänchen shift of an optical beam.

The experimental results confirm recent theoretical predictions about the composite Goos-Hänchen shift, including the observation of negative shifts of the beam's intensity peak.

Optimizing power oscillations in an ellipsometric system

Ellipsometry is a powerful and well-established optical technique used in the characterisation of materials. It works by combining the components of elliptically polarized light in order to draw

The asymmetric Goos–Hänchen effect

We show under which conditions optical Gaussian beams, propagating throughout an homogeneous dielectric right angle prism, present an asymmetric Goos–Hänchen (GH) effect. This asymmetric behavior is

Weak measurement of the composite Goos-Hänchen shift in the critical region.

The experimental results confirm theoretical predictions that recently appeared in the literature and verify the interplay between the angular and the lateral Goos-Hänchen shift of a focused He-Ne laser beam for incidence near the critical angle.

Role of beam propagation in Goos-Hänchen and Imbert-Fedorov shifts.

Using a classical-optics formalism, it is shown that beam propagation may greatly affect both Goos-Hänchen and Imbert-Fedorov shifts when the incident beam is focused.

Frustrated total reflection: the double-prism revisited.

Measurements of the Goos-Hänchen shift in frustrated total reflection with microwaves found an unexpected influence of the beamwidth and angle of incidence on the shift.

Closed-form expression for the Goos-Hänchen lateral displacement

The Artmann formula provides an accurate determination of the Goos-Hanchen lateral displacement in terms of the light wavelength, refractive index and in- cidence angle. In the total reflection

The Snell phase effects on the propagation of optical beams through dielectric blocks have been matter of recent theoretical studies. The effects of this phase on the laser profiles have been tested

Tunnelling transit time for frustrated total internal reflection (FTIR) in a double‐prism experiment was measured using microwave radiation. We have found that the transit time is of the same order
