Paper Abstract

In optics, the Goos-Hänchen shift is a transverse displacement of a reflected light beam along a material interface. It is usually associated with the presence of evanescent waves beyond the interface. We describe an analogous displacement effect for scalar waves at a boundary satisfying Robin, or mixed, boundary conditions, although the wave does not penetrate the boundary. We briefly discuss how the reflection of electromagnetic plane waves differs from reflection due to Robin boundary conditions.
