Abstract

When a thin structure in which negative refraction occurs (a metallo–dielectric structure or a photonic crystal) is illuminated by a beam, the reflected and transmitted beam can undergo a large negative lateral shift. This phenomenon can be seen as an interferential enhancement of the geometrical shift and can be considered a signature of negative refraction.
