Title: Direct Experimental Observation of the Goos Hanchen Shift
Published: April 09, 2008
Abstract: We report a precise direct measurement of the Goos-Hanchen (GH) shift after one reflection off a dielectric interface coated with periodic metal stripes. The spacial displacement of the shift is determined by image analysis. A maximal absolute shift of 5.18 m and 23.39 m for TE and TM polarized light is determined respectively. This technique is simple to implement and can be used for a large range of incident angles.
