Abstract

A solution procedure is developed for the determination of the electromagnetic field that results from the interaction of a tightly focused beam with a plane surface with and without a layer. The effects of angle of incidence, relative index of refraction, polarization, layer thickness, and incident beam profile on the resulting electromagnetic field distribution are demonstrated.
