Enhanced Birefringence of Inhomogeneous Slabs Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • We show that the presence of an interface changes the local field distributions in inhomogeneous materials. The loss of field symmetry leads to a significant surface-induced birefringence of an inhomogeneous medium. 2009 Optical Society of America.
