Abstract

The reflection and transmission of tightly focused azimuthally and linearly polarized electromagnetic wave beams with subwavelength spot size at a dielectric interface are investigated. A substantial increase of the reflectance of a light beam that is normally incident from a higher-index medium to a lower-index medium and a decrease of the reflectance of a beam that is incident from a lower-index medium to a higher-index dielectric medium in comparison with the Fresnel reflectance are predicted.
