New Journal of Physics Goos – Hänchen and Imbert – Fedorov shifts : a novel perspective


When a beam of light is reflected by a smooth surface its behavior deviates from geometrical optics predictions. Such deviations are quantified by the so-called spatial and angular Goos–Hänchen (GH) and Imbert–Fedorov (IF) shifts of the reflected beam. These shifts depend upon the shape of the incident beam, its polarization and on the material composition… (More)
