Abstract

An evaluation method is suggested for determining the Berry geometrical spin-redirection phase in systems with a set of separated optical elements. The evaluation considers the coordinate transformation, taking into account the directions of the beam. The spin-redirection phase contains information about the nonplanarity of beam propagation. This geometrical phase can be determined even if the ray trajectory is traced as an <i>unclosed</i> topological contour on the unit sphere associated with wave-vector directions.
