Abstract

We theoretically demonstrate that two separated beam spots with opposite circular polarizations can be observed by modulating the output intensity ratio and phase difference between the parallel- and cross- polarizations of the reflected beam. The spin separation in spin Hall effect of light, even in nanometers, can be greatly amplified and intuitively measured.
