Abstract

We show that optical anisotropy can exist in composite materials even when they consist of components that are isotropic in shape, spatial distribution, and optical properties. We demonstrate that the simple presence of a surface on a metal–dielectric composite induces an optical anisotropy that manifests itself in an unusual change of the state of polarization and spin Hall effect of reflected light.
