Abstract

A theoretical analysis of the lateral shift for an electromagnetic beam reflected from an uniaxial anisotropic slab coated with perfect conductor is presented. The analytic expression for the lateral shift is derived by using the stationary-phase approach, and the conditions for negative and positive lateral shifts are discussed. It is shown that the lateral shift depends not only on the slabthic kness and the incident angle, but also on the constitutive parameters of the uniaxial medium. Enhancement and suppression of lateral shift are observed and are attributed to the interference between the reflected waves from the two interfaces of the slab. By tuning the thickness of the slaband material parameters, large negative and positive shifts can be attained. In particular, when total reflection occurs at the upper interface, the lateral shift will saturate with increasing slabthic kness.
