A new diffraction effect-anomalous diffraction of glancing electro-magnetic waves by a flat interface of transparent dielectrics
Kolomeev M.P. , Svirkunov P.M. , Khmelevtsev S.S.
A new phenomenon has been observed in experiment, namely an anomalous increase of the amplitude of waves diffracted in an optically more dense medium at the total-internal-reflection angle. A theory of the effect is constructed and agrees satisfactorily with the experimental data.
