Abstract

We have measured the spin-dependent nanometer-sized displacements of the spin Hall effect of the reflected light from a planar air–glass interface. In the case of the vertical polarization, the displacement is found to increase with the incident angle and subsequently decrease after 48deg, while in the case of the horizontal polarization, it changes rapidly near the Brewster angle. For a fixed incident angle of 30deg, the displacement decreases to zero as the polarization angle approaches 39deg from 0deg (the horizontal polarization) and then increases in the opposite direction until 90deg (the vertical polarization).
