Paper Abstract

This paper presents a derivation of the field magnitude for laser beams of finite extent incident on coated total internal reflection (TIR) surfaces. The work presented is a continuation of efforts presented previously at this meeting. This analysis includes the effects of the Goos-Hanchen shift and a generalized coating on the TIR. This paper shows that inclusion of the Goos-Hanchen shift in the analysis results in vastly different E field magnitudes as a function of angle of incidence that previous work. This new behavior includes a null in the field for the S polarization.
