  10. In the limit of the critical angle, all models produce equal results. At grazing incidence (Φ1 → ½π) the shift XE and the delay time tE tend to zero, whereas xM = xS and tM = tS become infinite. This behavior has been often used against the marked-wave method. However, the results of the stationary-phase method and of scattering theory exhibit the same feature.
