Abstract

We have theoretically and numerically investigated the Goos-Hänchen shift (the lateral shift) from the anisotropic metamaterial slab. The sign and degree of the shift can be determined by the choices of the electromagnetic parameters and thicknesses of slab, which is different from the case of the isotropic media. We also find that the weak lossy may produce large positive or negative lateral shift.
