Abstract

We have measured the spin-dependent nanometer-sized displacements of the spin Hall effect of the reflected light from a planar air–glass interface. In the case of the vertical polarization, the displacement is found to increase with the incident angle and subsequently decrease after 48 deg , while in the case of the horizontal polarization, it changes rapidly near the Brewster angle. For a fixed incident angle of 30 deg , the displacement decreases to zero as the polarization angle approaches 39 deg from 0 deg (the horizontal polarization) and then increases in the opposite direction until 90 deg (the vertical polarization).
