Abstract

The phase shifts in external dielectric reflection were analyzed as a function of the incident angle. The contrast of the interference fringes formed between the incident and the reflected beams was considered. For the parallel mode the phase shift disappears between 45° and the Brewster angle. Experimental results are shown which demonstrate the contrast inversion in this region.
