Abstract

We present a novel matrix approach to proving that the phase shift at a turning point in a planar optical waveguide is exactly equal to π rather than to π/2 or to some other value. We also show the existence of phase contributions from reflected subwaves, which to our knowledge have never been taken into account previously.
