The well-known Goos-Hänchen and Imbert-Fedorov effects, the latter one also known as Spin Hall Effect of Light (SHEL), describe a polarization-dependent displacement of a light beam transmitted across a dielectric interface. Recently a similar shift, the so-called geometric SHEL, has been discovered [1]. It does not depend on the properties of an interface but only on the geometry of the system and amounts to a displacement of up to several wavelengths. This work discusses a tilted polarizing interface in connection to this shift.
