Abstract

Spin Hall effect (SHE) of transmitted light is small even near the Brewster angle in general case, e.g., at the air–glass interface. However, we find that the SHE can be enhanced when a linearly polarized Gaussian beam transmits through a thin epsilon-near-zero slab due to the difference between the Fresnel transmission coefficients tp and ts. For a vertically polarized incident beam, the spin-dependent transverse displacement of transmitted beam is enhanced near the Brewster angle, while it takes large value over a large angle scale for a horizontally polarized incident beam.
