Abstract

Lloyd’s mirror is analyzed for the case of total internal reflection. The reflected wave is interpreted in terms of the Goos-Hänchen shift. The interference between the incident and reflected beams provides an interferometric method of measuring the Goos-Hänchen shift at grazing incidence. An experiment is described and the results presented. The results agree with those theories which predict a nonzero shift at grazing incidence. The lateral wave is observed in the experiment.
