Abstract

An exact formulation for the propagation of a monochromatic wave packet impinging on a transparent, homogeneous, isotropic, and parallel slab at oblique incidence is given. Approximate formulas are derived for low divergence light beams. These formulas show the presence of anomalous refraction phenomena at any slab thickness, including negative refraction and flat lensing effects, induced by reflection at the rear face.
