Paper Abstract

We present a study of the total internal reflection of a Helmholtz-Gauss beam at a plane interface between two dielectric media. The derivation is based on the decomposition of the Helmholtz-Gauss beams in terms of its constituent plane waves components. We determine the shift predicted by the classical theory of the Goos- Hänchen shift and analyze the transverse intensity patterns of the reflected waves for a variety of Helmholtz-Gauss beam including Bessel-Gauss and Cosine-Gauss beams.
