A solution procedure is developed for the determination of the electromagnetic field that results from the interaction of a focused light sheet with a plane surface. The effects of angle of incidence, relative index of refraction, polarization, and incident light sheet profile on the resulting electromagnetic field distribution are demonstrated.
