Abstract

The Goos–Hänchen shift caused by total internal reflection at the interface between two media is analyzed. For two media of the same handedness the Goos–Hänchen phase shift opposes the phase variation associated with propagation through the incident medium. The Goos–Hänchen lateral shift is in the same direction as the horizontal component of the incident energy flux. Conversely, for two media of opposite handedness the Goos–Hänchen phase shift reinforces the phase variation associated with propagation through the incident medium. The lateral shift is in the opposite direction of the horizontal component of the incident energy flux.
