@article{Onoda2004HallEO, title={Hall effect of light.}, author={Masaru Onoda and Shuichi Murakami and Naoto Nagaosa}, journal={Physical review letters}, year={2004}, volume={93 8}, pages={ 083901 } }

We derive the semiclassical equation of motion for the wave packet of light taking into account the Berry curvature in momentum-space. This equation naturally describes the interplay between orbital and spin angular momenta, i.e., the conservation of the total angular momentum of light. This leads to the shift of wave-packet motion perpendicular to the gradient of the dielectric constant, i.e., the polarization-dependent Hall effect of light. An enhancement of this effect in photonic crystals…
